Defendant in Somali terror case changes stance on standing
Amina Farah Ali's defiant courtroom stand ended quietly Wednesday, but the debate over her actions is far from over.
For the first two days of her trial on terrorism-related charges, the Rochester woman refused to stand before U.S. Chief Judge Michael Davis, citing her Muslim beliefs. Her co-defendant, also a Muslim, did stand.
All that changed Wednesday. After two nights in jail for contempt, Ali rose to her feet as required.
