Fined $135,000


Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) orders the bakery to pay $135,000 in damage to the lesbian couple for refusing to make them a wedding cake. BOLI statement:

The facts of this case clearly demonstrate that the Kleins unlawfully discriminated against the Complainants…Under Oregon law, businesses cannot discriminate or refuse service based on sexual orientation, just as they cannot turn customers away because of race, sex, disability, age or religion. Our agency is committed to fair and thorough enforcement of Oregon civil rights laws, including the Equality Act of 2007.
