Jury awards $20,000 in Muslim woman's employment lawsuit
by David Harper
A federal jury awarded $20,000 in compensatory damages Wednesday to a Tulsa woman who was not hired to work at a local Abercrombie Kids store because she wears a headscarf, but jurors opted not to award her any punitive damages.
U.S. District Judge Gregory Frizzell turned down the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's request for an injunction against the company.
Still, Samantha Elauf, 20, said she was "very excited" by the outcome and that she is glad she made her situation public.
