(FOX NEWS) – The Supreme Court ruled Monday in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
In a 7-2 decision, the justices set aside a Colorado court ruling against the baker — while stopping short of deciding the broader issue of whether a business can refuse to serve gay and lesbian people.
At issue was a July 2012 encounter between the couple and baker Jack Phillips.
At the time, Charlie Craig and David Mullins of Denver visited Masterpiece Cakeshop to buy a custom-made wedding cake. Phillips refused his services when told it was for a same-sex couple. A state civil rights commission sanctioned Phillips after a formal complaint from the gay couple.
The battle has since developed into perhaps the most closely watched appeal so far this term before the high court.
