8A in the Beaver State

Oregon bakers Aaron and Melissa Klein have been fined $135,000 under state public accommodation statutes for their refusal to bake a cake for a same sex wedding. The judgement amount is being forwarded to the state labor commissioner for adjustment.


The eighth amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America:
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
So there's that. I guess.

Those of you who follow me at Sweet Talk and who find themselves perplexed at this judgement may be interested in my forthcoming altfic episode due out in the next couple of days. Check in or subscribe to stay tuned.

Do you have suggestions on where we could find more examples of this phenomenon?
