On June 26, 2017, the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take up Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, an attorney asked cake artist Jack Phillips to create a cake designed pink on the inside and blue on the outside, which the attorney said was to celebrate a gender transition from male to female. Jack declined the request because the custom cake would have expressed messages that conflict with his religious beliefs. Less than a month after the Supreme Court ruled for Jack in his first case, the state surprised him by finding probable cause to believe that Colorado law requires him to create the requested gender-transition cake.
In March 2019, the Colorado Civil Rights Commission dismissed the charges against Jack after new evidences surfaced showing the state's ongoing hostility toward Jack and his faith.
