Culhane Meadows Sponsoring CLE on SCOTUS Review of LGBT Wedding Cake Case (April 20th in Austin, TX)

Culhane Meadows is pleased to sponsor a timely CLE on Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, a case pending in the Supreme Court.  This case may have far-reaching implications for the future of religious expression, LGBT/civil rights, and the First Amendment. At issue is whether a Colorado law that requires a baker to create a wedding cake for two gay men violates the baker’s free speech or free exercise protections under the First Amendment, based on the baker’s sincerely-held religious beliefs about marriage.

Dale Carpenter, a Professor from the Southern Methodist University School of Law is the featured speaker (read his bio HERE) and he is the author of an amicus brief filed in the case (read more HERE).  This is a joint event presented by the Austin LGBT Bar Association, along with the ACS Austin Lawyer ChapterAustin Young Lawyers Association, and the Hispanic Bar Association of Austin.

Tickets to the CLE event are available HERE.
