After being suspended from ExpressJet for refusing to serve alcohol to patrons, a Muslim flight attendant is suing the Atlanta-based airline.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Michigan chapter announced Tuesday they were suing the ExpressJet for Charee Stanley, a Muslim woman and flight attendant out of Detroit, according to the Associated Press.
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.
ExpressJet said in a statement that it valued diversity, but that it could not comment on Stanley’s specific case.
