Jack Phillips Faces Third Lawsuit Over Refusal to Create Gender Transition Cake

Christian baker Jack Phillips of Colorado is facing a 3rd lawsuit over his refusal on non-secular grounds to create bound cakes, the most recent legal battle for the Masterpiece Cakeshop owner.

Transgender woman Autum Scardina filed a second lawsuit against Phillips last Wednesday in District Court for town and county of Denver, Colorado.

In the new lawsuit, Scardina claimed that Phillips desecrated Colorado’s Anti-Discrimination Act and shopper Protection Act by refusing to bake what the litigator labeled a “birthday cake.”

The “birthday cake” as represented within the lawsuit, that was to be blue on the skin and pink on the within, was alleged to symbolize Scardina’s transition from male to feminine.

Scardina is being diagrammatic by attorneys Paula Greisen and John McHugh. While briefing the native outlet CBS 4, Greisen aforementioned that the “dignity of all individuals in our state has to be preserved.”



“Masterpiece Cakeshop aforementioned before the Supreme Court they’d serve any baked sensible to members of the LGBTQ community. It had been simply the non-secular significance of it being a marriage cake,” claimed Greisen. “We don’t believe they’ve been honest with the general public.”

Jim Campbell, senior counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom, that has diagrammatic Phillips in his past judicial proceeding, aforementioned in an exceeding statement that was mere harassment.

“A new lawsuit has been filed against Masterpiece Cakeshop that seems to mostly rehash recent claims. The State of Colorado abandoned similar ones simply a number of months past,” explicit Campbell, as rumored by CBS.

“So this latest attack by Scardina appears like yet one more desperate commit to harass cake creator Jack Phillips. And it stumbles over the one detail that matters most: Jack serves everyone; he simply cannot specify all messages through his custom cakes.”

Over the past few years, Phillips and his Masterpiece Cakeshop are the topics of judicial proceeding geared toward forcing the baker to produce services for events that he’s opposition for non-secular reasons.

Last year, the US Supreme Court dominated 7-2 in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission that Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission was wrong to penalize Phillips for refusing to create a same-sex bridecake.

The Supreme Court dominated that the Commission desecrated Phillips’ right to free exercise of faith thanks to the bias showed in their application of civil rights law.

“To describe a man’s faith as ‘one of the foremost despicable items of rhetoric that folks will use’ is to criticize his faith in a minimum of 2 distinct ways: by describing it as despicable, and conjointly by characterizing it as simply rhetorical—something insubstantial and even meretricious,” wrote Justice Anthony Kennedy for the mass.

“This sentiment is inappropriate for a Commission charged with the solemn responsibility of truthful and neutral social control of Colorado’s anti-discrimination law—a law that protects discrimination on the idea of faith in addition to sexual orientation.”

Soon after, Scardina filed a criticism with the Commission against Phillips over his refusal to create a cake celebrating Scarinda’s gender transition. In response, Phillips sued Colorado last August.

In March, Colorado and Phillips each in agreement to drop their various judicial proceeding, with Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser stating that “both sides in agreement it had been not in anyone’s best interest to maneuver forward with these cases.”

“The larger constitutional problems would possibly rather be set down the road, however, these cases won’t be the vehicle for partitioning them,” aforementioned Weiser earlier this year.

“Equal justice for all can still be a core price that we are going to uphold as we tend to enforce our state’s and nation’s civil rights laws.”

The third lawsuit is allowed as a result of the agreement between Colorado and Phillips provided Scardina the proper to pursue separate judicial proceedings against the Christian baker.
