New fast casual restaurant opens in Bearden

Simple and fresh, that's the mission of a new restaurant in Knoxville.

Zoe's Kitchen opened Thursday in Bearden Hill.

The Alabama-based chain caters to people on-the-go and to families. The concept started in 1995 with the aim of offering fresh, fast casual food.

Zoe's Kitchen says it has an array of options.

"Salads, wraps, pitas, we have a phenomenal dinner menu with steak kabobs, salmon kabobs, chicken kabobs. We make our own hummus as an appetizer with free-squeezed lemon juice," said Tyre Stuckey.

Woman fired by UT gets to pursue Sabbath complaint

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A federal appeals court has revived a lawsuit by a Seventh Day Adventist who claims she was unfairly fired by the University of Tennessee at Knoxville because she refused to work on her Sabbath.

The ruling from a panel of judges for the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was issued Tuesday in Cincinnati in favor of Kimberly Crider. The opinion says a lower court incorrectly dismissed the case when it should have explored whether UT could have accommodated Crider's religious beliefs without undue hardship for the university.
