A jury in Detroit federal court has awarded one of the largest verdicts in an employment discrimination case to a Muslim American.
Ali Aboubaker, 56, came to Michigan over two decades ago, chasing the American dream. But he never expected what would happen, according to his attorney Shereef Akeel.
"He had come from overseas from Tunisia and became a naturalized citizen," Akeel told WWJ's Charlie Langton. "He came to America for a better life and he was fired after 17 years, wrongfully fired."
