The Colorado bakery owner who refused to make a custom cake for a same-sex couple has returned to federal court — now for declining to bake a cake for a transgender woman.
The Supreme Court ruled in June that Jack Phillips — owner of the Masterpiece Cakeshop — had the legal right to decline service to a same-sex couple due to his Christian religious beliefs.
Phillips is now suing Colorado after the state’s civil rights commission found probable cause that the baker had used unlawful discrimination when he declined service to a transgender woman, Autumn Scardina, who had asked him to make a cake commemorating an anniversary of her transition.
“Both Phillips and Masterpiece Cakeshop serve everyone. All people—no matter who they are, what they believe, or what protected characteristics they have—are welcome in Phillips’s shop and may purchase anything available for sale,” reads the lawsuit filed Tuesday by Phillips’ attorneys.
