CORRECTION: SG's Views Sought In Title VII Religious Accommodation Case

The U.S. Supreme Court today asked for the Solicitor General to file a brief in Patterson v. Walgreen Co., (Docket No. 18-349, 3/18/2019). (Order List). In the Title VII case, the 11th Circuit held that Walgreens had offered reasonable accommodation for the religious needs of a Seventh Day Adventist employee whose beliefs did not permit him to work on Saturday. (See prior posting.) A prior posting incorrectly reported that cert. had been denied in the case.
