Elizabeth Wydra and Carrie Severino previewed the upcoming court case Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. They provided background and perspectives on the different sides involved in the case. The Masterpiece Cakeshop case weighs the First Amendment rights of businesses with the rights of individuals to not be discriminated against. The case stems from a cake shop in Colorado who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.
In Obergefell v. Hodges the Court ruled 5-4 that the Fourteenth Amendment requires all states to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and recognize marriages from other states.
