This is quite stunning. Imagine you were low man on the totem pole at a multi billion dollar entertainment corporation that employes tens of thousands of people world wide.
Now imagine that you had been working their a while as a character in a specific costume.
Now imagine that you sent a message to the head office saying that despite the conditions of your being hired, you demanded that they change the costume you are paid to wear for one you decided you wanted to wear for whatever reason and instead of them telling you to go blow yourself or ignore you altogether, not only do they get back to you in a matter of weeks but they actually say yes and allow you to modify your costume your way with a slight alteration to keep it in the character of the job and instead of being stunned by the largesse of this huge company, you sue them for not accomodating you perfectly the way you want. So in fact, that you no longer are representing them, but that they are now paying you to represent what you want to the public.
And for that you sue them.
This should be an interesting court case. As it has exactly nothing whatsoever do to with religious accommodation.
