British airways cross suit

Nadia Eweida shows her crucifix to photographers as she leaves television studios near Parliament on January 15, 2013 in London, England. The European Court of Human Rights has passed judgement on four individuals who claim their employers discriminated against them for their Christan beliefs. The court ruled that Nadia Eweida's rights had been violated after her employer, British Airways, prevented her from visibly wearing a religious cross pendant on a necklace. However, three other Christians, nurse Shirley Chaplin, marriage counsellor Gary McFarlane and registrar Lillian Ladele all had their claims declined.
