Cameron on Tuesday threatened a lawsuit to challenge Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear’s ban on mass gatherings, unless the governor allows in-person church services to resume.

Beshear has said his mass gathering orders do not single out churches.

Cameron also filed a motion in federal court contending that Beshear’s restrictions on out-of-state travel are unconstituional.
