Update From CPCF Legal Team

The Supreme Court has accepted another same-sex marriage vendor case from Colorado.  In this case, 303 Creative, a designer wishes to prepare web sites for heterosexual marriages but not for same-sex marriages.  The state said she could not do that consistently with the pubic accommodations law that prohibits discrimination against sexual orientation, and the Tenth Circuit, 2-1, upheld the state.  The Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether, by forcing her to associate and foster a message with which she disagrees, the web-site designer’s free speech rights would be violated.  The case will be argued and decided next term.
