The U.S. Supreme Court this morning will hear oral arguments in Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, the widely followed case that pits the religious and free speech rights of a Christian bakery owner against the rights of a same-sex couple under Colorado’s public accommodation law.  SCOTUSblog has a preview of the arguments, as well as a case page with links to the many briefs filed in the case, to the opinion below and to extensive commentary.  The high profile which the case has assumed is encapsulated in this deck headline from the Christian Science Monitor:As evidenced by the people who began camping outside the high court for a seat at Tuesday’s oral arguments, the Masterpiece Cakeshop case seems destined to be a historic ruling – with both sides warning that defeat could bring potentially seismic consequences.Daily Signal has a profile of one of the lawyers who will be arguing before the court today.  The transcript of the oral arguments should become available later today.  I will post a link to it at that time.
