Brush and Nib bigotry at taxpayers' expense - UPDATED

You might recall my prior post about Brush and Nib, owned by Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski. The two young women are calligraphers in Phoenix. They have not been asked to make invitations for a same-sex wedding but fear that they might be in the future. Apparently were they to make gay wedding invitations they would turn into salt or some such nonsense. So Jeremy Tedesco of Alliance Defending Freedom to the rescue. ADF has filed a pre-enforcement challenge to Phoenix's nondiscrimination ordinance. The City of Phoenix has hired outside counsel (at considerable expense I am sure) and there is a pre-trial conference tomorrow. Just take a look at what this bullshit has already cost the taxpayers, and the meter is still running.

Update: I have been advised that the motion to dismiss is still pending.

By the way, ADF has virtually no chance of prevailing. They haven't won one of these yet.
