Nadine’s latest article on the forced government speech case (“gay website case”) with Kristen Waggoner: ‘Web Designer’s Free Speech Supreme Court Victory Is a Win for All’


The Times on the “gay website” case (Creative V.  Elenis) :

The Supreme Court sided on Friday with a web designer in Colorado who said she had a First Amendment right to refuse to design wedding websites for same-sex couples despite a state law that forbids discrimination against gay people. …
Ms. Smith, who has said that her Christian faith requires her to turn away same-sex couples seeking website design services
Colorado’s attorney general, Phil Weiser, warned of the ruling’s implications, saying that it would pave the way for all sorts of businesses to turn away L.G.B.T.Q. customers.

From the Court’s opinion:

To facilitate the district court’s resolution of the merits of her case, Ms. Smith and the State stipulated to a number of facts:
 Ms. Smith is “willing to work with all people regardless of classifications such as race, creed, sexual orientation, and gender,” and she “will gladly create custom graphics and websites” for clients of any sexual orientation. App. to Pet. for Cert. 184a.

The Times on the “disinformation case,” (Missouri v. Biden) –

[The case will decide] how far the government can go in trying to prevent the spread of potentially dangerous information, [such as] people who campaigned against masks, [and] opposed lockdowns.  (Emphasis mine)
