Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Craig

In 2012, a same-sex couple asked Masterpiece Cakeshop to bake a cake for their wedding. The bakery's owner refused, citing his religious belief that homosexuality is a sin. The couple then filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission under the state’s public accommodations law, which forbids discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
 
An administrative law judge held that the shop owner had indeed violated the law, and the shop owner appealed that ruling to the Colorado Court of Appeals.
