The Veil: Twice Dismissed
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Judge Paul Paruk (per-ROOK) requested she remove her veil during a 2006 hearing in the town of Hamtramck (ham-TRA’-mick). She was contesting a $3,000 charge from a rental-car company to repair a vehicle she said thieves had broken into.
Paruk told her he needed to see her face to judge her truthfulness and gave her a choice: Take off the veil have the case dismissed. She kept it on and sued the judge last year alleging he violated her religious and civil rights. source
Yesterday, a federal judge dismissed her case against that judge.
