A hearing has been delayed for a Tulsa Police Captain who was reassigned for refusing to order his officers to attend a law enforcement appreciation day at an Islamic Center in February of 2011.
 
Captain Paul Fields served 80 hours of unpaid punishment for his actions.  He says the order violated his religious rights.

The Judeo Christian public interest law firm representing Fields has requested a judge to rule on the case without a jury.  Fields is seeking his docked pay, attorney's fees, as well as compensatory damages for humiliation and damage to his reputation.

The hearing was scheduled to get underway Wednesday afternoon, but has been moved back to December 11th.

This story is all over Facebook and a couple of other blog sites. We are being watched Tulsa, let this man go back to work, he was right and you all were wrong....do the right thing, don't embarass us further with this, everyone knows what CAIR is about, stop punishing a good officer for doing what was right for him and his men.
