WASHINGTON (AP) – The Supreme Court is ordering Washington courts to take a new look at the case of a florist who refused to provide services for the wedding of two men because of her religious objection to same-sex marriage.
The justices’ order Monday means the court is passing for now on the chance to decide whether business owners can refuse on religious grounds to comply with anti-discrimination laws that protect LGBT people.
That’s the same issue they confronted, but ultimately passed over in the recent ruling in favor of a Colorado baker who also objected to same-sex marriage on religious grounds.
