CASEThinkRight Strategies v. City of Ann Arbor

Client Story


Share this page
Summary
Ann Arbor, Michigan, has a law that prohibits discrimination based on political beliefs. Grant Strobl and Jacob Chludzinski challenged the city's law, concerned that the city would force them and their company, ThinkRight Strategies, to promote political messages and causes that contradict their conservative and religious principles, just as similar laws across the country have been used to force cake artists and printing companies to promote messages they oppose.
