Dreadlock Decision Was Not Heard on Its Merits

I have never heard of the federal religious freedom restoration act. Did the plaintiff secure an attorney to present his case?
It is indeed sad that his case was never heard on the merits! Someone should have advised him to file a charge at the Department of Labor / Division of Labor Relations . Complainants are allowed 180 days to file such claims after the alleged act of discrimination occurs. In cases where the local FEBA has jurisdiction and the 180 days expired such cases are deffered to the Miami EEOC for investigation.
What a travesty and a tragedy!
