The local bakery owner caught up in a legal battle over her refusal to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple is heading to Kern County Superior Court on Friday.
Cathy Miller, the owner of Tastries Bakery, is facing a discrimination case filed by the state.
Prosecutors say she discriminated against the couple in August because they are gay. Miller said because of her religious beliefs, she would not design a cake for them. She did refer them to another baker who would.
The couple was also already married for at least six months before they approached Miller, according to court documents.
