The District of Columbia has thrown in the towel in its legal fight with Capitol Hill Baptist Church, which won a preliminary injunction against the city’s COVID-19 restrictions last fall.
In a settlement between the parties Thursday, Mayor Muriel Bowser and her administration agreed to pay $220,000 to church lawyers at WilmerHale and the First Liberty Institute.
“The District agrees that it will not enforce any current or future COVID-19 restrictions to prohibit CHBC from gathering as one congregation” in the district, according to the settlement.
Should the district impose new restrictions on religious gatherings in the name of mitigating COVID-19 “or variant thereof,” they will not be more restrictive than on “comparable secular activities, as defined by the Supreme Court,” the settlement also states.
