by Natalie Hee
A Muslim woman in Jefferson Parish says she was discriminated against in court because of her religion. The judge says the incident was simply court procedure.
The woman, who did not want to be identified on camera, says she went to Jefferson Parish Traffic Court on Tuesday to pay off a ticket she received from an accident.
After she cleared security at the entrance, the woman says she walked into the courtroom for her hearing.
