SCOTUS Rules for Christian Colorado Baker: An Interview with Janene MarisculloEmployment Law This Week® June 11, 2018
In this extended interview from Employment Law This Week® (Episode 120: Week of June 11, 2018), Janene Marasciullo, a Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green, discusses the Supreme Court’s decision in Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.
The high court ruled in favor of a baker in Colorado, who refused an order for a custom wedding cake from a gay couple because of his religious beliefs, finding that comments by one member of the Colorado Commission showed religious animus that violated the First Amendment’s free exercise clause. The Supreme Court declined to address the delicate balance between a business’s First Amendment rights and statutory protections under anti-discrimination laws, but the issue is likely to be back in court in the near future.
