The U.S. Supreme Court today declined to hear a religious liberty case next term concerning Phyllis Young, a Hawaii woman who declined to rent a room in her bed & breakfast to a lesbian couple out of objections to same-sex marriage. The court’s action leaves in place a lower court opinion that found Young’s actions to be discriminatory. The state’s intermediate Court of Appeals issued the ruling but left pending any damages to be awarded. Court observers said the case was not accepted because it had not yet made its way through the lower courts to a final judgement. CNN has more on the story.
