U.S. Supreme Court

The Colorado man who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple—a dispute now at the heart of a U.S. Supreme Court case—isn’t the only party to his challenge. His company, Masterpiece Cakeshop, is also a party, and a decision in favor of the baker could have wider implications for corporations and shareholders.

More than 40 amicus briefs have been filed on each side of the case, which the justices will hear in December. But only one brief—on behalf of 34 corporate law professors—addresses the role of Masterpiece Cakeshop Ltd. itself in the claims brought by Jack Phillips. Phillips has argued that a Colorado anti-discrimination law cannot force him to create something—a wedding cake—in violation of his speech and religion rights.
