Federalist Society Speaker: Prof. Duncan on Masterpiece Cakeshop case

November 1 @ 1:00 pm - 1:50 pm

The Mizzou Law Federalist Society will host Professor Richard Duncan from the University of Nebraska. Professor Duncan will speak about the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, which has been set for argument before the U.S. Supreme Court on December 5 of this year.

For those not familiar with the case, the issue presented is whether applying Colorado’s public accommodations law to compel the petitioner (Masterpiece Cakeshop cakemaster) to create expression (a wedding cake for a same-sex couple) that violates his sincerely held religious beliefs about marriage violates the free speech or free exercise clauses of the First Amendment.
