The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has temporarily restored Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s ability to limit crowd sizes in a Thursday ruling, the Associated Press reports.
The decision puts on hold a Sept. 14 ruling from U.S. District Court Judge William Stickman IV, who had said the gathering restrictions were unconstitutional, while the Wolf Administration appeals the lower court decision.
