A majority of U.S. Supreme Court justices on Wednesday expressed support for a Muslim woman denied a job at an Abercrombie & Fitch Co clothing store in Oklahoma because she wore a head scarf for religious reasons.

The nine justices heard a one-hour argument in an appeal brought by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a federal agency that sued the company on behalf of the job applicant, Samantha Elauf.
