UPDATE: Oregon Begins Legal Process To Seize Christian Baker’s Assets

The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries, which has relentlessly persecuted Melissa and Aaron Klein for their refusal to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding, has taken steps to seize the $135,000 they fined the Kleins, according to the Daily Signal.

Charlie Burr, BOLI Communications Director said, “Our agency has docketed the judgment and is exploring collection options.  They are entitled to a full and fair review of the case, but do not have the right to disregards a legally binding order.”

The Kleins are not giving in to BOLI’s unconstitutional action towards them.  “There’s legal reasons and there’s also kind of personal reasons.  If a civil court or a circuit court judge had made this order, I would consider it legally binding.  But when a bureaucracy does it and I didn’t get due process, I don’t call it legally binding,” Aaron Klein said.

This action towards the Kleins stems from a July 2nd ruling when Brad Avakian, BOLI commissioner, violated the 1st amendment rights of the Kleins and ordered them to pay a ridiculous fine of $135,000 to the same-sex couple for “psychological damages” by refusing to participate in the wedding ceremony.

The Kleins had requested a stay from BOLI while filing a petition with the Oregon court of appeals.  BOLI denied the stay, which means that they demand the money now instead of waiting for the court of appeals to make a ruling. 

“It’s difficult to understand the Kleins’ unwillingness to pay the debt when they have, very publicly, raised nearly a half million dollars,” Burr said.

The Kleins dispute the amount of money that Burr says they have raised, saying that amount is “bloated”.  They are also unwilling to touch any of the money until they see what the future brings.

This case is not about money.  It’s about the overreach by the state and the persecution of the Kleins for standing up for their beliefs and exercising their 1st amendment rights.
