Alito upheld Sabbath observance case



Samuel Alito!
On the Supreme Courto!
How sweeto!
Now see if Democrats
can veto!


JTA:

President Bush’s nominee to the Supreme Court strongly upheld the right of a Jewish employee to observe the Sabbath...
In Abramson v. Patterson College in 2001, Alito strongly supported the prevailing opinion upholding an Orthodox woman’s complaint that faculty meetings held late on Friday afternoons constituted harassment. In a concurring opinion, he wrote that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act “does not permit an employer to manipulate job requirements for the purpose of putting an employee to the cruel choice between religion and employment.”
