Cakeshop Case to Be Heard this Term Raises Comparison to Hobby Lobby Case
Posted Sep 14, 2017
The Supreme Court in Burwell v Hobby Lobby held that sincerely held religious beliefs in closely held corporations must be respected by the government. The Court will soon hear Masterpiece Cakeshop, where it will decide whether Masterpiece’s refusal to create a wedding cake for a gay wedding is legal, causing much legal controversy.
