On
Nov. 1, the Kentucky Supreme Court ruled in favor of Christian
print-shop owner Blaine Adamson, who was sued for refusing to print
“gay-pride” T-shirts for the Lexington Pride Festival.
According to the opinion of the court, written by Justice Laurance B.
VanMeter, “[T]his matter must be dismissed because the Gay and
Lesbian Services Organization (GLSO,) the original party to bring
this action before the Lexington Fayette Urban County Human Rights
Commission, lacked statutory standing to assert a claim against Hands
On Originals under the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government.”
The court ruled (6-0) that GLSO had no standing because under
discrimination law in Kentucky, such claims can only be filed by
individuals and not organizations. GLSO lost at the initial trial,
the appeals court and now at the supreme court.
