Justices to review New Jersey bid for legal sports betting

"The Arkansas decision was an outlier in that regard and I'm very hopeful now that the U.S. Supreme Court has reversed the Arkansas Supreme Court that other state supreme courts will understand that the law really does require equal treatment of same sex married parents", Minter said.

In 2008, the Supreme Court ruled in District of Columbia v. Heller, that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to keep guns in their home for self-defense.

In 2012, Coloradoans David Mullins and Charlie Craig visited Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colo., to order a wedding cake for a post-nuptial celebration of their marriage in Colorado after taking their vows in MA.

Conservative Justices Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas dissented, saying the lower court decision should not have been reversed.

In the original class action suit, brought in the name of two immigrants held for long periods with no hearing, a district court and an appeals court ruled they should have rights similar to citizens who are guaranteed protections against indefinite detentions.

The post Man in court for refusing to bake cake for gay couple appeared first on Vanguard News. Ray Lesniak, a Democrat who has long pushed for legalization of sports gambling, said a win in the Supreme Court would boost the fortunes of Atlantic City casinos. "The Constitution does not give anyone the right to harm others based on religious beliefs".

A lawyer for Phillips says he also declines to make cakes for Halloween because the holiday violates his religious belief. The decision bolsters the landmark ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, the 2015 case in which the court concluded that same-sex couple are entitled to marriage "on the same terms and conditions as opposite-sex couples".

"It's a cake that's specifically for a religious event that goes against my religious beliefs".

The Supreme Court hasn't yet scheduled oral arguments for this case, but it could happen as early as this fall.

A recent U.S. Supreme Court decision could have an impact on an IN case now under review IN the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. The law now at issue would ban wagers on state college teams and limit bets to people age 21 and older at casinos and racetracks. The majority in that case mandated that gay partners be afforded the full "constellation of benefits" associated with marriage, a category into which the birth certificate issue fell.
