A Florida pharmacist is suing a drug chain that fired him after he refused to sell condoms to customers. A Chasidic Jew, Hillel Hellinger says he was following Jewish law “to be fruitful and multiply” when he refused to sell condoms. But Eckerd Corp. claims that Hellinger was fired because of poor customer service. The trial, which opened Monday, is expected to last for a week.
