A Muslim woman whose small-claims case was tossed out after she refused to remove her veil in court has been granted a new hearing.
Ginnnah Muhammad, 42, of Detroit, plans to wear a niqab - a scarf and veil that covers her head and face, leaving only the eyes visible - at her Feb. 21 hearing.
Muhammad wants to contest a rental car company's $2,750 charge to repair a vehicle that she said had been broken into by thieves.
"I'm hoping that the judge ... listens to my case and judges the case on its merits, not on how I look," Muhammad said. [Link]
