CAIR-Chicago Staff Attorney Rima Kapitan and PILI Fellow Tawfiq Ali represented a Muslim man in the first status hearing after filing a complaint in federal court. The man is an officer with a local county Sheriff’s department and was continuously harassed by other officers regarding his national origin and religion. The Sheriff’s department still has not responded to the federal complaint, and another status hearing has been set.
CAIR-Chicago will continue to represent the man in his employment discrimination case.
