More bad news for Brendan Dassey of Making a Murderer

Brendan Dassey is escorted out of a Manitowoc County Circuit courtroom in Manitowoc Wis

Early this month, the Supreme Court issued a limited ruling in favor of Jack Phillips, the proprietor of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado.

"To be clear, the court made no indication the lower courts ruled incorrectly and made no decision on the case's merits", ACLU official James Esseks said in a statement.

In an opinion by Justice Anthony Kennedy, the 7-2 majority found that comments by a member of the Colorado Civil Rights Commission displayed an anti-religious bias - depriving Phillips of the respect and consideration his beliefs deserved. "The state of Washington, acting through its attorney general, has shown similar hostility here". The Washington state attorney general sued her and won.

How the Arlene's Flowers case is decided could shed some light on the scope of the Masterpiece Cakeshop decision.

That leaves unresolved the central dispute between proponents of gay rights and religious objectors: whether anti-discrimination laws in 22 states can require creative artists to serve same-sex weddings against their beliefs.

Arlene's Flowers owner Baronnelle Stutzman believes that she was treated with the same sort of antireligious animosity the court found in the Colorado case.

It is usually held on Friday nights, but organisers moved the competition to Saturday in an effort to draw a bigger audience. Last year's victor was a 125-pound (57-kilogram) gentle giant named Martha - a Neopolitan Mastiff with gas and a droopy face.

Stutzman had served the gay couple for 10 years, ADF said.

Ms. Stutzman said she referred Mr. Ingersoll to several other florists in the area and hugged him before he left. Later, however, his partner posted a message on social media about Stutzman declining to take part in the wedding, and it went viral. "Enforcing civil rights laws doesn't show hostility to religion", the American Civil Liberties Union said in a statement. Making a Murderer chronicled Dassey and Avery's trial and subsequent conviction, raising questions about Dassey's confession to being a co-conspirator since he was 16 years old at the time and considered mentally deficient. She was hit with a $1,000 fine and directed to make floral arrangements for same-sex weddings if she does so for opposite-sex weddings. He sent the case back to the lower court to consider "what if any remedy is appropriate at this time".

"Juveniles and those with intellectual deficits are at a particular risk of confessing involuntarily-and often falsely-under the strain of coercive police tactics", Seth Waxman, a former USA solicitor general who encouraged the Supreme Court to hear the case, told NBC News. Her home, business, savings and personal assets are all at risk in the case.

But Dassey "unexpectedly confessed to investigators that, at his uncle's urging, he had raped the victim while she was tied up in bed and begging for mercy, and soon thereafter confessed to helping kill her and burn her body", wrote state solicitor general Misha Tseytlin.

In a statement earlier this month, Stutzman said that she serves all customers, but can not create products for events that conflict with her deeply held religious beliefs.
