CBN News has reported for years about the Kleins, two Oregon bakers who were fined for refusing to make a cake for a gay commitment ceremony.

The case involves bakers Melissa and Aaron Klein who were punished with a $135,000 fine for declining to create a same-sex wedding cake in 2013.

The legal fight over the case went up to the high court on Monday where the justices threw out a previous state court ruling against the Kleins, sending the case back down to that court in Oregon.

The justices say the state court needs to reconsider the case in light of last year’s Supreme Court ruling in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding. The court had ruled that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission showed anti-religious bias against Christian baker Jack Phillips.

The Oregon appellate court ruling came before the high court’s decision in the Phillips’ case.
