SCOTUS-Toons: Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Human Rights Commission (oral arguments in animated film)
Here is a “SCOTUS TOONS: Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Human Rights Commission”.
The oral arguments are overlaid with animation, since video photography is not normally allowed at the Supreme Court.
The arguments concerned not so much “religious freedom” as “compelled speech”, if you regarding decorating a wedding cake as speech.
SCOTUS sided with Masterpiece Cakeshop on very narrow grounds earlier in June with a majority opinion underscored by the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.
The Masterpiece Cakeshop case has nothing to do with the new Strand Releasing film “The Cakemaker” (reviewed by me on Wordpress).
