The latest post in the Equality Blog series titled "Frosting on the Cakes: Non-Discrimination Laws, First Amendment in the Mix at Supreme Court (Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, No. 16-111)" by Chad M. Eggspuehler.

Sheesh, there has been a whirlwind of activity in this case since the last entry, with Petitioners filing their merits brief at the end of August and more than three dozen amici briefs filed in the first week of September, including an unexpected amicus brief filed by the U.S. Department of Justice on behalf of the United States. (Yet another sign that elections matter.) In addition, in just the past few days, SCOTUSblog hosted an online symposium presenting a variety of thoughtful perspectives on the case that I commend to your attention. (See Symposium entries here.)  While future blog entries will unpack these developments once all the briefs are in, I’d like to pick up where we left off—with the Supreme Court’s compelled-speech precedents.
