TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) â City Walk Urban Mission filed a Motion to Dismiss the current code enforcement charges on the grounds that they are barred by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.
On March 24, 2021, City Walk was served a letter from the Tallahassee Code Enforcement saying it had five days to stop acting as a shelter after the City denied City Walk's permit to operate as a shelter earlier this month.
City Walk's motion filed Wednesday states, "Those allegations are so vague that Respondents are unable to formulate a meaningful defense. However, it appears that the charges associated with permits and inspections are directly related to the underlying issue with site plan approval."

OKLAHOMA CITY â The Oklahoma House of Representatives passed legislation to protect religious freedom and the constitutional right to worship.
Rep. Brian Hill, R-Mustang, presented House Bill 2648, also known as the Oklahoma Religious Freedom Act, which dictates that anything closing places of worship would be considered a substantial burden on peopleâs freedom of religion.
House Majority Floor Leader Jon Echols, R-Oklahoma City, is a co-author of the bill.
The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads: âCongress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof â¦â
HB2648 passed the House 80-18 and is now available to be considered by the Senate, where it is authored by Sen. David Bullard, R-Durant.
At least three priests have fallen ill. That is according to a message on its website.
The church says it will be closed through February 13, with all services streamed online only.
The San Francisco City Attorney's Office sent the Archdiocese a cease-and-desist letter last year ordering the church to stop holding large indoor masses.
In July, at least 10 people were infected with COVID-19 at a wedding ceremony held at the church against public health orders.
