Muslim Cabbies Lose Round In Court
ST. PAUL, Minnesota (AP) — Muslim cab drivers whose religious beliefs go against driving passengers who carry alcohol have lost another round in court.
The Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday against the cab drivers' attempt to block penalties for refusing service.
An ordinance adopted by the Metropolitan Airports Commission last year revokes a cab driver's license for 30 days for refusing a fare at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. A second refusal brings a two-year revocation.
