(Worthy News) - In June 2017, a lawyer named Autumn Scardina asked Phillips to create a custom cake celebrating his transition from male to female. When Phillips declined, on the same grounds as he had before, Scardina filed a discrimination complaint.
The Colorado Civil Rights Commission found probable cause that Phillips had again violated the state’s anti-discrimination laws.
Rather than wait for the entire process to play out, however, Phillips took the initiative and filed a federal lawsuit.
Assisted by the Alliance Defending Freedom, Phillips’ lawsuit makes four legal claims. First, he alleges that the government violated his First Amendment right to exercise his religion by targeting, showing hostility toward, and discriminating against him based on his religious beliefs and practices.
