In Garcia v. Gloor, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a district court ruling that an employer's policy requiring employees to speak only English while at work did not violate the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibition against national origin discrimination. In so ruling, the court extended the mutable-immutable characteristics rationale that the Fifth Circuit first outlined in Willingham v. Macon Telegraph Publishing Co.
