9 cases to watch in the Supreme Court’s upcoming term

Washington Examiner

Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission

The Masterpiece case is shaping up to be the highest profile controversy of the term, pitting religious liberty advocates against gay rights supporters in a row over the issue of free expression.

The Supreme Court’s resolution of the Masterpiece case will determine the constitutionality of Colorado’s public accommodations law forcing cake-baker Jack Phillips to create speech that defies his religious beliefs.

How the new nine-justice court chooses to adjudicate the dispute could reveal how it will tackle cases involving tension between religious liberty, free speech, and gay rights for decades to come. The Masterpiece decision looks likely to also impact a deluge of wedding vendor controversies heading the high court’s way in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision legalizing same-sex marriage.
