Abercrombie wrong in firing Muslim woman

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
A federal judge in California ruled that Abercrombie & Fitch violated the law in firing a Muslim employee for refusing to take off her religious head scarf at work.
The lawsuit, originally filed in 2011, accused Abercrombie of discriminating against Umme-Hani Khan.
Abercrombie fired Khan, then 19, from a store in San Mateo.
“I was just really upset about what happened and I didn’t want it to go by, because if it happened to me, it could happen to anyone,” Khan told CNNMoney.
