Woman fired by UT gets to pursue Sabbath complaint

Woman fired by UT gets to pursue Sabbath complaint

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A federal appeals court has revived a lawsuit by a Seventh Day Adventist who claims she was unfairly fired by the University of Tennessee at Knoxville because she refused to work on her Sabbath.

The ruling from a panel of judges for the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was issued Tuesday in Cincinnati in favor of Kimberly Crider. The opinion says a lower court incorrectly dismissed the case when it should have explored whether UT could have accommodated Crider's religious beliefs without undue hardship for the university.
