Muslim Man and Daughter Thrown Out of Staten Island Apple Store, Suit Says
by James Fanelli
A Muslim car mechanic and his daughter are suing Apple for $10 million, accusing employees at its Staten Island store of refusing to service their iPhone because of their religion, according to a lawsuit.
Elsayad Sobhi, 48, claims he and his teenage daughter, Norhan, were threatened and thrown out of the store after employees spotted her wearing a traditional headdress.
Sobhi went to the Heartland Village outlet on Dec. 20, 2010, to get his recently purchased iPhone fixed by an employee, according to a lawsuit filed March 15 in Brooklyn Supreme Court.
