Muslim Flight Attendant Sues Over Refusal To Accommodate Objection To Serving Alcohol

CAIR Michigan announced yesterday that it has filed suit in federal district court against ExpressJet Airlines on behalf of a Muslim flight attendant who has religious objections to serving alcohol to passengers. Originally the flight attendant, Charee Stanley, had worked out arrangements with other flight attendants  on duty for them to serve all alcohol.  However apparently one of the flight attendants objected and the airline placed Stanley on administrative leave. The lawsuit follows an earlier complaint filed with the EEOC. (See prior posting.)
