GRESHAM, Ore. The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries ruled a Gresham bakery discriminated against a same-sex couple when it refused to make a cake for their wedding.

The couple filed a complaint against Sweet Cakes by Melissa last year. The bakery's owners said they wouldn't sell the couple a wedding cake because it violated their religious beliefs.

The state ruled a bakery is not a religious institution, so refusing the order violated Oregon s Equality Act passed in 2007.

In September, the bakery shut its doors and said via a Facebook post it was moving the business to an in-home bakery.

BOLI will now work with both sides to see if they can reach a settlement.
