Throwback Tulsa: Six years ago, Tulsa Muslim woman wins case against Abercrombie & Fitch

Throwback Tulsa: Six years ago, Tulsa Muslim woman wins case against Abercrombie & Fitch

9 hrs ago

Six years ago, on July 21, 2015, a lawsuit filed on behalf of a Tulsa Muslim woman against Abercrombie & Fitch ended after the store dropped its appeal.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the suit in 2009 against Abercrombie & Fitch after the store’s Woodland Hills outlet refused to hire then-teenager Samantha Elauf because she wears a religiously-mandated hijab, or head covering. The case went to the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled June 1 in Elauf’s favor.

The EEOC reported that Abercrombie & Fitch has paid $25,670 in damages to Elauf and $18,983 in court costs.

Here's a look back at the case
