Appeals court rules on side of jewish inmate

The Houston Chronicle is reporting; a Houston man in jail for murder should be served kosher meals, a federal appeals court ruled.

The U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans reversed a lower court's judgement, stating that Max Moussazadeh has a sincere religious belief as an Orthodox Jew in keeping a kosher diet and that Texas infringed upon his beliefs by denying him free kosher meals, according to court records filed on Dec. 21.

If he has not been convicted of the crime then yes, give him the meals. If he is convicted, give him bread and water.
