On November 30, 2004 the Haaretz News reported, "an Army engineer from Michigan who said he was investigated for spying for Israel because he is Jewish won't get his religious discrimination claim heard by the U.S. Supreme Court. With no comment, the court declined to hear David Tenenbaum's appeal on Monday. Tenenbaum, of Southfield, Mich., is a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Army Tank Automotive and Armaments Command in Warren, Mich. He also is an Orthodox Jew who is fluent in Hebrew... Tenenbaum sued various government agencies in 1998 after the Defense Department and the FBI put him on paid leave and investigated his ties to Israel. As part of that investigation, the FBI raided Tenenbaum's house on the Jewish Sabbath and took two of his children's drawings as evidence, Morganroth said."
