N.Y. State Body Postpones Decision on Aramco’s Anti-jewish Bias

Download PDF for this date

The New York State Commission Against Discrimination today postponed for at least two months a decision in along series of legal moves designed to end discrimination against the employment of Jews by Aramco, the Arabian-American Oil Company, which operates vast oil refining facilities in Saudi Arabia.

After two days of hearings here by a three-member panel of its commissioners, SCAD ordered the attorneys for the American Jewish Congress, which initiated the anti-bias fight, and counsel for Aramco to file briefs by February 19. After the date, each side will have two weeks more to submit briefs answering the other side. Then, SCAD will decide whether to hold further oral argument.
