Remy was interviewing with a video game company when he asked the obvious question: would he need to learn French to work in Quebec? Remy wasn't from the province and didn't speak the language. The company, like many of the major players in Canada's video game industry, was based in Quebec. "[So I asked], is that going to be a problem?" Remy said. (Remy is not his real name.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court said Monday that a high school football coach who sought to kneel and pray on the field after games was protected by the Constitution, a decision that opponents said would open the door to “much more coercive prayer" in public schools.

The case forced the justices to wrestle
