NEW YORK (AP) — An appeals court has added another twist in the battle over worship services in New York City schools.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday sharply narrowed the scope of a restraining order issued the day before. The court said the order, which kept the city from enforcing its no-worship policy, applies to only one congregation.

The city and the 50 or so religious groups that were evicted from public school spaces last weekend had thought the order meant they could all return to the schools.

But the appeals court said only the Bronx Household of Faith was free to worship in a public school this weekend.
