LOS ANGELES -- A Los Angeles jury has awarded more than $2 million to a Muslim courier who was fired after missing three days of work for the birth of his child and a religious holiday.

Mehmood Darjee, 38, sued Laboratory Corporation of America, alleging religious discrimination and violation of the state's Family Rights Act.

For those of you who've been following BCS for a while, Laboratory Corporation of America is the company I did my daily Long Island run for back when I was a courier in CT. Everybody I met who worked for Labcorp seemed pretty miserable, so this isn't so much a surprise, y'know?

Ah, me.
