A judge has rejected a New Mexico megachurch’s request to ease state restrictions on in-person worship gatherings amid the state’s ongoing lockdown orders in response to COVID-19.

Legacy Church, an Albuquerque-based multi-site congregation of about 20,000 members, sued New Mexico in April, arguing that restrictions on in-person gatherings violated their First Amendment rights.
