A federal appeals court in New York has reversed a 2012 decision allowing a small church to hold religious services at a public school.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Thursday that a city ban on religious services in schools is constitutional.

It’s the latest development in a two-decade legal battle involving the Bronx Household of Faith.

The decision struck down a lower court ruling that blocked the city from enforcing the ban.

The lower court found that the ban violated First Amendment protections regarding free exercise of faith.
