  •  How would that work? (0+ / 0-)
    the Kosher / Halal observance argument doesn't depend on the corporation asserting the claim.  The infringement on free exercise in the guise of a generally applicable law belongs to the butchers, as employees, or consumers.
    Are you suggesting that the butchers or the customers would be able to somehow intervene in an enforcement action against the Kosher butcher?

    Or would they be able to challenge the law on its face?  I seriously doubt that they would have standing because if they did then almost anyone would have standing to challenge any law.  For example, they could also challenge other laws on animal and food handling claiming that they made it harder or more expensive to buy Kosher food.
