Abercrombie Trying To Prove That An Associate's Hijab Hurt Sales. It's Not Going Well

After it fired an employee for wearing a Muslim headscarf (called a hijab), Abercrombie & Fitch is now in court trying to prove that the garment hurt store sales. Those efforts are not going well for the chain. On Tuesday, when a federal judge in California pressed attorney Mark Knueve, who is representing Abercrombie, about whether he or any of his witnesses had financial records to show the woman's hijab hurt sales, Knueve said he didn't. "A defendant says we're harmed but provides no real evidence?" Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers retorted, according to the report. "And you want me to grant summary judgment [in your favor]?" Story
