A former mail carrier is telling the Supreme Court the Postal Service didn’t go far enough to accommodate his religious beliefs when it scheduled him to work Sundays.

In a filing before the Supreme Court this week, legal counsel for Gerald Groff, a former rural carrier in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, argued USPS failed to demonstrate that meeting his religious accommodation not to work on Sundays was an “undue burden” on the agency.

Groff’s attorneys describe him as an “Evangelical Christian who observes a Sunday Sabbath, believing that day is meant for worship and rest.”

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments in the case, Groff v. DeJoyon April 18.
