Religious liberty gets boost from Gorsuch in Masterpiece Cakeshop
In one of the most anticipated decisions of this term, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down a narrow ruling in the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. Justice Kennedy delivered the opinion of the court. He was joined by Chief Justice Roberts, the rest of the center-right Justices and most notably, liberal Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan. The 7-2 decision sided with Masterpiece, holding that the Commission’s actions violated the Free Exercise Clause.
