County appealing $1.2 million discrimination award
by Donna Marie Iadipaolo
Washtenaw County is appealing a discrimination lawsuit in which they were ordered to pay $1.2 million to a Muslim man who says he was unfairly passed over for a promotion and called a terrorist.
Ali Aboubaker, 56, of Ypsilanti, said he was denied an opportunity to interview for the Entry Level Drain Inspector Position because of his "race, national origin, or religion."
A U.S. District Court jury awarded Aboubaker $1.2 million due to lost wages and other damages.
