The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom General Counsel Kristen Waggoner regarding the District Court of Colorado’s decision Thursday to dismiss one of the two claims against Colorado cake artist Jack Phillips in Scardina v. Masterpiece Cakeshop:

“The decision by the court to dismiss one of the claims against Jack Phillips is the first step towards final justice. Jack has been threatened with financial ruin simply because he makes decisions about which messages to create and celebrate—decisions that every other artist in Colorado is free to make. Tolerance for different opinions is essential. We look forward to defending Jack—and ultimately prevailing—on the remaining claim.”
