Muslim truckers who refused to deliver alcohol awarded $240,000

A jury has awarded $240,000 to two Muslim men who say they were fired from an Illinois trucking company after refusing to deliver alcohol.

A judge found Morton-based Star Transport Inc. violated the religious beliefs of Mahad Abass Mohamed and Abdikarim Hassan Bulshale. A trial to determine whether they were entitled to damages ended Oct. 20 with the jury's judgment.

A 2013 lawsuit filed by U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said the men wouldn't deliver alcohol because it was against their religious values as practicing Muslims. The lawsuit claimed the company didn't provide them "with a reasonable accommodation and by terminating them because of their religion."

The Peoria Journal Star reports it's not clear whether the men will get the money because Star Transport has gone out of business.

Another example of this country puckering up and kissing muzzie ass.
We are in a fight with Islam? Hell no, we have been defeated.

Wow! That's $105,000 MORE than a state attempted to extract FROM a company exercising the SAME RIGHT.

I’m waiting for similar compensation to the Muslim baker and Muslim florist who refuse to celebrate the gay wedding. Frankly, I would DARE our kangaroo courts to refuse to give it to them - and a few judicial beheadings would not be out of order anyway.

What a pity.

Can alcoholics sue Muslim truck drivers?/s
I saw that Canada has a problem with muzzies refusing to give rides to blind people with seeing-eye dogs and the majority of cab drivers are muzzies.
I wonder how they feel about transporting pork?

Would they send you out to the courthouse patio and give you a bag of day old bread? Or do you have to buy your own?

Or maybe that is not what you meant...

seems to me, the Oregon bakers should be appealing somewhere and using this as a precedent

Christian bakers and bed and breakfast owners persecuted by state and federal lawyers. Where is the equality under the law?

What's not to believe? The trucking company admitted liability. This suit was only to see how much money in damages the plaintiffs are entitled to, a moot point as the company went out of business.

meanwhile, this regime applauds sending a Christian to jail because she didn’t want to violate her religious beliefs
