The Washington Supreme Court upheld its 2017 opinion that found Arlene’s Flowers had unlawfully discriminated against Robert Ingersoll and Curt Freed by denying them service on religious grounds in 2013.

“We are thrilled that the Court has reaffirmed its ruling in our favor,” Freed and Ingersoll said in a statement. “Discrimination hurts, especially while planning what should be one of the happiest times of your life. We hope that this ruling will prevent what happened to us from happening to others.”
