Abercrombie Hijab Case Picked Up by High Court
Abercrombie & Fitch must head to the Supreme Court to defend its decision not to hire a teenage Muslim girl because of her headscarf, the justices said Thursday.
Samantha Elauf was 17 in mid-2008 when she applied for a sales job at an Abercrombie Kids store in the Woodland Hills Mall in Tulsa, Okla.
Abercrombie calls its sales associates "models," and holds them to a "Look Policy" that involves showcasing the preppy brand. Though the policy prohibits models from wearing black clothing or caps, it leaves the term cap undefined.
