Arizona Appeals Court rules in favor of anti-discrimination law

Phoenix - An appeals court in Arizona decided that an anti-discrimination law is deemed constitutional.  

On Thursday the court sided against a wedding store business saying they cannot discriminate based on sexual orientation.

This decision comes days after the U.S Supreme court sided with a Colorado baker who refused serving a same-sex couple.

The store owners, Joana Duka and Breanna Koski, believe that artists should not be forced to create artwork that contradicts their beliefs and values.

Both the Mayor of Phoenix, Thelda Williams, and the American Civil Liberties Union praised the courts decision in this case.

Duka and Koski said they plan to appeal the decision to the Arizona Supreme Court.
