Because not getting a cake entitles you to $135,000 in damages?
Via PJ Media:
Thank You PJ Media and Nick.The owners of the now-closed Sweet Cakes Bakery in Gresham, Oregon have paid out more than $135,000 in damages for refusing to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding.Klein turned in a check for $136,927.07, which included interest on the July 2015 state-ordered judgment, to the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries in Portland after violating the Laurel and Rachel Bowman-Cryer’s civil rights, according to OregonLive.com.
“My clients are happy the Kleins paid the fine and are moving forward,” the Bowman-Cryer’s lawyer Paul Thompson told the Oregon paper. “I hope to see the ruling upheld on appeal.”The incident took place back in 2013, when Laurel Bowman-Cryer went to the bakery for a wedding cake tasting. She was told the bakery could not make the cake for religious reasons. Bowman-Cryer filed a complaint with the State of Oregon and the labor commissioner awarded the damages, claiming it was a violation of state law to discriminate based on sexual orientation.
It's nice to see our Courts have their priorities centered in the really important issues facing America.
At these rates, what's attempted murder worth?
