After the Supreme Court upheld the First Amendment rights of Colorado baker Jack Phillips, he has continued to be targeted by the ‘Civil Rights’ commission and every liberal activist who thinks they have a case, so now he has filed a harassment lawsuit against the commission.

Colorado Baker Fights Back

The Colorado baker who refused to make a gay-wedding cake is back in the news after winning his case at the Supreme Court level.

After Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, won his case, another liberal ordered a gender transition cake from his shop, and filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission after he refused.

The commission, in its “crusade to crush” his business, ordered that he must mediate with the customer over his ‘discrimination.’

However, Phillips is fighting back. He has filed a lawsuit against the commission citing his belief that “the status of being male or female … is given by God, is biologically determined, is not determined by perceptions or feelings, and cannot be chosen or changed,” according to his lawsuit.

The Alliance Defending Freedom represented Phillips in the SCOTUS case and filed the new lawsuit.

“Phillips operates a small, family-run bakery located in a strip mall in the southwest Denver suburb of Lakewood. He told the state civil rights commission that he can make no more than two to five custom cakes per week, depending on time constraints and consumer demand for the cakes that he sells in his store that are not for special orders.”

“Autumn Scardina, a Denver attorney whose practice includes family, personal injury, insurance and employment law, filed the latest complaint, claiming that Phillips refused her request for a gender transition cake in 2017.

Scardina said ‘she’ asked for a cake with a pink interior and a blue exterior, and told Phillips it was intended to celebrate ‘her’ gender transition.

On June 28, the commission ruled that Scardina was “discriminated against because of her transgender status. It ordered both parties to seek a mediated solution.”

In his lawsuit, Phillips argues that “Colorado violated his First Amendment right to practice his faith and the 14th Amendment right to equal protection, citing commission rulings upholding other bakers’ refusal to make cakes with messages that are offensive to them.”

“For over six years now, Colorado has been on a crusade to crush Plaintiff Jack Phillips … because its officials despise what he believes and how he practices his faith,” the lawsuit said. “This lawsuit is necessary to stop Colorado’s continuing persecution of Phillips.”

The lawyers also argue that Scardina may have targeted Phillips several times after he refused her original request.

The lawsuit includes information that Phillips received several anonymous requests to make cakes depicting Satan and Satanic symbols. He believes Scardina made those calls.

“The lawsuit reported that Phillips has been harassed, received death threats, and that his small shop was vandalized while the wedding cake case wound its way through the judicial system.”

Defendants in the lawsuit are members of the Colorado Civil Rights Division, including division director Aubrey Elenis; Republican state Attorney General Cynthia Coffman; and Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper.
