The Supreme Court on Monday threw out a ruling against two Oregon bakers who refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple.

The couple, Melissa and Aaron Klein, cited religious beliefs as their reason for not providing services for a gay wedding. This touched off the latest in a series of such cases making headlines in recent years. During the court's last term, justices ruled in favor of a Colorado baker in a similar situation, stating that a state body demonstrated improper hostility toward the baker's religion in finding that he violated a state anti-discrimination law.

y,  I hope you realize that the title is misleading. The Supreme court tossed nothing. They sent the case back down to a lower court "for further consideration in light of" the Colorado decision. Basically they are giving the lower court a chance to reconsider.
