Dunkin Donuts insists Muslim franchise owner serve pork

Proviso Herald (David Weese) has the story of a Muslim who bought a Dunkin Donuts franchise before the company had breakfast sandwiches on the menu. From 1984 to 2002 the arrangement worked. The owner didn't include the pork products on the menu, and the company gave his franchise favorable ratings.

But then Dunkin Donuts changed its mind. The owner is represented by Robert Habib. Habib represented Paul Esparza in his defamation case against Eugene Moore, Askia Abdullah and David Sharp. I thought Habib did a good job presenting the case to a judge and jury. The first trial resulted in a mistrial, but the jury members clearly said they were inclined to find for the plaintiff (Esparza represented by Habib).
