Newsom sued by California students over indoor high school sports restrictions

A group of high school athletes in California filed a lawsuit against Gov.
Gavin Newsom Monday to challenge his ban on indoor youth sports during the coronavirus pandemic.
The group of five athletes, -- a basketball player, a wrestler, a cheerleader, and two volleyball players -- jointly filed for a temporary restraining order, with the support of their parents and guardians, in Orange County Superior Court.
The lawsuit argues that under the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment, youth sports have been treated unfairly because collegiate and professional indoor sports in the state have been allowed to play, according to FOX 11 of Los Angeles.

"I’ve been watching college volleyball for a while now and it’s frustrating seeing them play cause we’re not able to," added Elodie Danet, a sophomore volleyball player at El Modena High School in Orange.
"They can’t say that it’s OK for college to play and not OK for the high school kids to play," Brad Graham said, according to the station.
High school athletes are currently prohibited from playing indoors unless a county reaches the yellow tier (minimal risk), according to the Orange County Register.
California recently updated its guideline to allow for competition of outdoor, high-contact sports -- citing improved health conditions and concern for mental health.
In a state that has more than 800,000 student-athletes, high school sports officials have said that COVID-19 testing would be too expensive.
Ken Elliott, a spokesperson for Let Them Play CA, said the group could overcome those obstacles.
