Justices won't hear case of anti-gay marriage florist

June 25, 2018 - 9:40 am

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is ordering Washington courts to take a new look at the case of a florist who refused to provide services for the wedding of two men because of her religious objection to same-sex marriage.

The justices' order Monday means the court is passing for now on the chance to decide whether business owners can refuse on religious grounds to comply with anti-discrimination laws that protect LGBT people.

That's the same issue they confronted, but ultimately passed over in the recent ruling in favor of a Colorado baker who also objected to same-sex marriage on religious grounds.
