Abercrombie denies the accusation, not specifically ask the argument of woman ELAUF for a religious exemption.
Questions of some of the judges were in favor of the woman ELAUF, but the final decision will be made in May.
The clothing store has changed its policy headscarf, but continue to fight the case in court.
In a statement on Wednesday, the company said it had a “long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion,” and was “issued numerous religious accommodations on request, including hijab”.
