Court Rules Florist Discriminated Against Gay Couple by Refusing to Sell Flowers for Their Wedding

WASHINGTON - A Benton County Superior Court judge today ruled that a florist in Richland, WA violated the state’s anti-discrimination law when she denied service to a gay couple for their wedding. The ruling came in a lawsuit (Ingersoll v. Arlene’s Flowers) filed by the ACLU on behalf of Curt Freed and Robert Ingersoll. The court agreed with the suit’s contention that the refusal of Arlene’s Flowers to sell flowers to the couple violates the longstanding Washington Law Against Discrimination and the Consumer Protection Act.

Well I hope that court win put Arlene out of business so she can't discriminate against anyone again.
