On December 17, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled for Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear in Danville Christian Academy v. Beshear, denying an emergency application that challenged the Governor's executive order temporarily prohibiting in-person K-12 instruction to limit the spread of COVID-19. Alongside counsel to the Governor, Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP had filed a brief in the Supreme Court in which it defended the constitutionality of his public health measures and explained why the emergency application should be denied.
