Judge: Sweet Cakes bakery should pay $135K to lesbian couple

PORTLAND, Ore. - On Friday, an administrative law judge proposed that the owners of an Oregon bakery pay $135,000 to a lesbian couple refused service more than two years ago.

The judge, Alan McCullough, ruled in January that Sweet Cakes by Melissa discriminated against Laurel and Rachel Bowman-Cryer by refusing to bake them a wedding cake.

Friday's proposed order dealt with the award for emotional suffering.

The maximum penalty that could have been assessed was $150,000, or $75,000 per person. Judge McCullough awarded $60,000 in damages to Laurel Bowman-Cryer and $75,000 in damages to Rachel Bowman-Cryer.


Did The GOP Just Surrender On ObamaCare?

Health Reform: Voters who handed Republicans control of the Senate, largely on the promise of killing ObamaCare, must be wondering why they bothered. Senate leaders now want to protect the law for the next two years. In June, the Supreme Court is expected to rule in a case that could eliminate ObamaCare subsidies for anyone signing up through Healthcare.gov.

For those who haven't followed the case, Halbig v. Burwell claims the law, as written, allows tax subsidies only for those who enroll through state-run ObamaCare exchanges, of which there are only 14. Anyone who has to use the federal exchange would be out of luck.

Those who want ObamaCare gone see this case as a prime opportunity to replace the law, or at least chuck big chunks of it. One idea was to pass a bill letting affected states opt out of ObamaCare, while using other means to protect those now getting subsidies.

Instead, the Senate leadership appears to be listening to warnings from the liberal camp that they will suffer politically if the court strikes down federal subsidies.

Democrats, the argument goes, will pound the GOP mercilessly for forcing millions to drop their now-unaffordable health plans, just as voters are starting to pay attention to the 2016 elections.
