SCOTUSblog asks

In Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, will the Supreme Court rule that the application of a Colorado anti-discrimination law to compel Jack Phillips to make a cake for a same-sex wedding violates any of his First Amendment rights?

In 2015, the Colorado Court of Appeals ruled that Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd, violated the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act by refusing to make a cake for the wedding of a local gay couple. Phillips refused because of his religious beliefs regarding same-sex marriage. The Supreme Court is expected to hand down its decision in its current term, but if it does not, the question will resolve as no.
