Jack Phillips won a partial victory from the Supreme Court previously after he refused to make a wedding cake for a homosexual couple a decade ago.

Now Phillips is challenging a separate ruling that he violated the state’s anti-discrimination law when he refused to make a cake celebrating a gender transition.

His lawyer encouraged Colorado’s appeals court to overturn last year’s ruling brought by a transgender attorney based on procedural grounds.

A male trial lawyer who identifies as a woman called Phillips’ cake shot requesting a birthday cake that had blue frosting outside and was pink inside to celebrate his “gender transition.” This took place in 2017.

Phillips testified at trial last year that, as a Christian, he did not believe someone could change genders and he wouldn’t celebrate “somebody who thinks that they can.”
