Bak­ers win ap­peal

Warwickshire Telegraph - - NATIONAL -

THE Chris­tian own­ers of a bak­ery at the cen­tre of the “gay cake” case ex­pressed “de­light and relief” af­ter win­ning a Supreme Court ap­peal over a claim that they had dis­crim­i­nated against a cus­tomer.

Five jus­tices at the UK’s high­est court al­lowed a chal­lenge by the McArthur fam­ily, who run Ash­ers bak­ery in Belfast, in a unan­i­mous rul­ing in Lon­don.

The le­gal ac­tion was orig­i­nally brought by gay rights ac­tivist Gareth Lee, who was re­fused a cake with the slo­gan “Sup­port Gay Mar­riage” on it.
