A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against a Wayne County judge who was accused of violating a woman’s right to practice her religion when he told her to remove her Muslim head scarf.

U.S. District Judge Marianne Battani (Ba-TAN’-ee) says no offense was intended.

She says Raneen Albaghdady (AHL’-bag-daddy) never protested and quickly complied when told to remove her scarf in Wayne County Circuit Court last summer.
