However, the justices' ruling was limited, and didn't deal with the biggest concern in the case – whether religious people like Jack Phillips could refuse to serve gay or lesbian people.
The 7-2 limited ruling Monday turns on what the court described as anti-religious bias on the Colorado Civil Rights Commission when it ruled against baker Jack Phillips.
After Phillips refused to make a cake for Charlie Craig and David Mullins in 2012, the gay couple filed a complaint with the Commission. The Commission ruled in their favor, saying Phillips had violated the state's anti-discrimination law, which bars businesses from discriminating against customers based on their race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.
The justices voted 7-2 that the Commission violated Phillips' First Amendment right to exercise his religion.
