A Colorado law forces web designer Lorie Smith and her studio, 303 Creative, to design and publish websites promoting messages that violate her religious beliefs. The law at issue also prevents Lorie from even explaining on her own company’s website what websites she can create consistent with her religious beliefs.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit ruled that Colorado can force Lorie to express messages and celebrate events that violate her faith. But no one should be banished from the marketplace simply for living and working consistently with their religious beliefs. That's why ADF appealed this decision to the U.S. Supreme Court on Lorie's behalf.
