Supreme Court sides with Colorado baker who refused to make wedding cake for same-sex couple

Baker Jack Phillips

The Supreme Court ruled Monday in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, in one of the most closely watched cases of the term. 

In a 7-2 decision, the justices set aside a Colorado court ruling against the baker -- while stopping short of deciding the broader issue of whether a business can refuse to serve gay and lesbian people. 

The opinion was penned by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is often the swing justice in tight cases.

The law that permitted this is still intact. The ACLU and other activists were not penalized. The baker is still at risk of another LGBT activist persecuting him with full cooperation of the state.
