Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson has weighed in the on the case of Barronelle Stutzman, owner of Arlene's Flowers and current appellant in a case that has reached the state Supreme Court. You may also remember Stutzman as the florist who made the news for refusing to provide flowers for the marriage of a same-sex couple.
From The New Civil Rights Movement:
Stutzman and her Alliance Defending Freedom attorney since the case began in 2013 have egregiously been putting on a show, traveling the country, and claiming the state is trying to bankrupt her...
No, the State of Washington and the couple she discriminated against just want her to stop discriminating, as the decision against her read.
Of course, the falsehoods Stutzman, her attorney, and a complicit media have claimed managed to get her $92,000 in donations via a GoFundMe page.
And now, thanks to her anti-gay attorney using Stutzman to further her own cause, the Arlene's Flowers owner is appealing the decision to the Washington Supreme Court.
Attorney General Bob Ferguson late Wednesday filed a 64-page brief that "outlines in exhaustive legal detail why the state’s top justices should uphold a Benton County Superior Court decision related to Arlene’s Flowers," the Tri-City Herald reports.
