Supreme Court Vacates and Remands Same-Sex Wedding Cake Case

The U.S. Supreme Court today granted certiorari, vacated the judgment of the Oregon Court of Appeals and remanded for further consideration the case of Klein v. Bureau of Labor & Industries, (Docket No. 18-547, 6/17/2019). (Order List). In the case, the Oregon Court of Appeals agreed with the state Bureau of Labor and Industries that Sweetcakes bakery violated the state's public accommodation law when it refused to design and create a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding. (See prior posting.)  The Supreme Court ordered reconsideration in light of its decision in Masterpiece Cakeshop last year.
