Legal Spirits Episode 001: A British Version of Masterpiece Cakeshop?

For the first Legal Spirits podcast, Center Director Mark Movsesian and Associate Director Marc DeGirolami discuss the UK Supreme Court’s decision last month in Lee v. Ashers Baking Company. The court ruled that Christian bakers did not violate British anti-discrimination laws when they declined to create a cake with a pro-gay marriage inscription. Mark and Marc explain the British decision and compare it with the American Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Masterpiece Cakeshop, and speculate what influence the British decision might have in future American cases.
