Baker In spotlight after court win in gay wedding cake case

Jack Phillips is an unlikely U.S. Supreme Court plaintiff.

The Denver baker spent most of his 62 years out of the public spotlight until a gay couple asked him to make their wedding cake in 2012 and Phillips said no.

The state's civil rights commission said he was wrong and had violated the rights of the couple.

Phillips, however, stuck to his beliefs and appealed the case to the high court.

The ruling Monday turned on what the court described as anti-religious bias on the Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

They said the commission had violated Phillips' rights under the First Amendment but the justices stayed out of the thornier issue of whether people can avoid providing services to same-sex weddings because of religious beliefs.
