According to a report from Fox News, a Muslim flight attendant has apparently sued ExpressJet Airlines accusing the airline of wrongly suspending her because she refused to serve alcohol to passengers. According to the report, The Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Michigan chapter announced Tuesday it filed the lawsuit last week on behalf of Charee Stanley, a Detroit-based flight attendant for the airline headquartered in Atlanta.
Excerpt From Fox News:
The federal court case follows a discrimination complaint filed last year with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which dismissed it without determining whether the airline violated the law. Stanley alleges ExpressJet didn’t provide a reasonable religious accommodation and seeks back pay and other damages. She was placed on unpaid leave last summer.
