Tellis v. Alaska Airlines, Inc.
9th Cir. Case No. 04-35137
Plaintiff's cross-country trip to retrieve family vehicle during his wife's late-stage pregnancy difficulties, and his calling her on the phone during the three and a half days he was away, were not "to care for" his wife under the Family and Medical Leave Act and thus not a protected absence from his employment.
Well, if I was the Plaintiff, I'd take that one all the way to the Supreme Court. Heh. (=
