The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday granted a request from Gov. Tom Wolf to reinstate crowd gathering restrictions designed to prevent the spread of covid-19.
In a two-page order filed just after noon, Judges D. Brooks Smith, Michael Chagares and Patty Shwartz granted the request to stay the decision from U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh that ruled the governor’s orders restricting gathering sizes and ordering nonessential businesses to close were unconstitutional.
