ADF: Kentucky high court should leave victory for printer's freedom in place

Monday, Jun 12, 2017

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Jim Campbell regarding the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission’s request Monday of the Kentucky Supreme Court to hear the case the commission lost in two lower courts against printer Blaine Adamson and his business, Hands On Originals:

“Americans should always have the freedom to say no when asked to express ideas that violate their conscience. Blaine is willing to serve all people, but he cannot print all messages. The two lower courts properly affirmed that Blaine can’t be forced to print words and logos that express ideas in conflict with his faith. The Kentucky Supreme Court should leave those decisions in place.”

The response to the request for review in Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission v. Hands On Originals is due to the court in July.
