Tastries Bakery's attorneys to seek more than $200,000 in legal fees


Charles S. LiMandri, the attorney for Cathy Miller and Tastries Bakery, is asking for more than $200,000 in legal fees from the California Department of Fair Employment.

Miller was charged for unlawful discrimination after refusing to make a cake for a same-sex couple last year.

Miller and her attorney's eventually won the case. The judge published an opinion following the case saying, "the right to free speech under the First Amendment outweighs the state's interest in ensuring a freely accessible marketplace."

Now the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund wants reimbursement of legal fees after defending the bakery free of charge. They are asking for $220,000 in fees.

LiMandri said he expects a ruling from the judge soon and that this ruling will benefit all Californians.
