The Extremists Sue Ariens

The Muslim extremists in NE Wisconsin are using lawyers instead of bombs.  (It's up to you to figure out which is worse.)

...An Islamic advocacy group is suing a Wisconsin manufacturer, alleging it failed to accommodate 19 Muslim employees who wanted to take prayer breaks during work time.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations wants the Ariens Co. to rehire the former employees and give them back pay and damages. The group’s federal lawsuit, filed Wednesday in Green Bay, also asks the Brillion lawn mower manufacturer to reinstate a more lenient religious accommodation policy that would allow employees to take short breaks for prayers at different times, such as dawn and sunset....

Interesting, because:

1)   ...the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission investigated the allegations several months ago and dismissed the complaint....


2)   ...The company said many Muslim employees who continue to work at the plant comply with the two-break policy and are able to fulfill their religious practices during those times....

There's always some damn lawyer who's looking for revenue.
