Trump Admin. Motions to Argue on Behalf of Jack Phillips in Supreme Court Gay Wedding Cake Case

President Donald Trump’s administration has asked to be allowed to argue in favor of Colorado Christian baker Jack Phillips and his right to refuse to make gay wedding cakes, during oral arguments before the Supreme Court, which are set for Dec. 5.”As a general matter, the United States has a substantial interest in the preservation of federal constitutional rights of free expression,” the government’s motion, filed Wednesday, reads. “In addition, the United States has a particular interest in the scope of such rights in the context of the Colorado statute here, which shares certain features with federal public accommodations laws including Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.”
