The Supreme Court on Tuesday handed its latest victory to the right by agreeing to take a case against Colorado’s LGBT+ anti-discrimination law.
The Court announced that it would hear a case against a state law prohibiting businesses from refusing service to LGBT+ persons on the basis of religious objections filed by a website developer who specialises in online wedding announcement sites who does not wish to serve same-sex couples.
The case follows a narrowly-written 7-2 vedtak i 2018 in favour of a baker who wished to refuse service to same-sex couples who challenged the same law. The specifics in that case, derimot, led to the Court acknowledging at the time that it could rule the other way were the circumstances to change.
While the announcement of the Court’s decision to hear the case came on Tuesday, it will not be argued before the Court until the next term. That means it will likely be one of the first major cases which President Joe Biden’s eventual nominee to replace Justice Stephen Breyer will hear.
The case to be brought against the law this time will likely result in a much broader ruling that would decide the constitutionality of the law one way or the other.
