Federal Court Says 60 Churches Can Keep Meeting in NYC Public Schools – For Now
By Pete Winn February 16, 2012
(CNSNews.com) – A federal judge in Manhattan issued a temporary restraining order Thursday allowing the Bronx Household of Faith and 59 other New York City churches to continue meeting for weekend worship services in New York City public schools.
The city had evicted the churches on Feb. 12.
“This court order is a fantastic victory and will calm the 60 plus congregations that were frantically searching for space,” New York City Council Member Fernando Cabrera said. “I commend the U.S. District Court for ruling justly.”
