RENO — A Dayton church is asking a U.S. appeals court to overturn a federal judge's refusal to strike down the state's 50-person cap on religious gatherings as unconstitutional. Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley has filed formal notice of its appeal to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco after a judge in Las Vegas rejected its second request last week for a preliminary injunction blocking enforcement of the hard cap.
