Supreme Court Rules in Facebook, Abercrombie & Fitch Cases

Hosted by

Inside the courtroom, the justices put out two decisions today involving household names: Abercrombie & Fitch and Facebook. In one, they ruled in favor of Muslim woman who wore a headscarf to an interview at an Abercrombie store seven years ago. She didn’t get the job because her hijab clashed with the store’s famously preppy dress code. And today’s ruling could have big implications when it comes to religious rights in the workplace. In the Facebook case, the court ruled that angry -- even threatening -- social media rants are not necessarily criminal.
