In Nyaboga v. Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society, Case No. A11-2067, 2012 WL 3641017 (Minn. App. Aug. 27, 2012), the court ruled that denying unemployment insurance benefits to a Seventh-day Adventist who was a registered nurse violated her free exercise rights. The plaintiff had a history of tardiness and absences, leading the unemployment law judge to conclude that her termination was justified and that she was ineligible for unemployment benefits. But the court of appeals ruled that the conduct that triggered the plaintiff's discharge was an absence for religious reasons on Saturday; therefore, denying her benefits did violate the Free Exercise Clause
