ABSTRACT
The parents of a Muslim 6th grader who was suspended in October for wearing a veil to school have filed a lawsuit against the 6,300-student Muskogee, Oklahoma, school district. The suit, filed last month in the U.S. District Court in Muskogee by the Rutherford Institute, a Charlottesville, Virginia-based legal-advocacy group, alleges that the district violated Nashala Hearn's right to freedom of religion. It requests that the girl be allowed to wear a veil in school and have her record expunged.
