The US Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to bake a cake for a same sex couple because of a religious objection. The justices voted 7-to-2 that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission violated baker Jack Phillips' rights under the First Amendment. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Justice Sonia Sotomayor were the two dissenting votes. And while this was a win for Phillips, the court has yet to take up the broader issue of religious liberty and whether a business can refuse to serve gay and lesbian people. Joining us to talk more about this and other cases is Albany Law Professor Vin Bonventre.
