Hijab removal lawsuit in Dearborn settled. Why? It depends who you ask.
by Sarah Cwiek
A federal religious freedom lawsuit filed against the Dearborn Police Department has been resolved.
But the two sides give different versions of how and why the case was settled.
Maha Aldhalimi sued the city of Dearborn and its police department last year. She claimed that after police arrested her for unpaid parking tickets in 2014, officers forced her to remove her headscarf, known as hijab, for a booking photo.
