Harassed for Wearing a Headscarf?



Washoe County (NV) School District claims it would have responded to former student Jana Elhifny's complaints if she had been able to tell school officials anything about her tormentor--gender, size, tone of voice--before she dropped out to return to Egypt and marry. But the school settled her claim--and that of Elhifny's non-muslim friend who felt "ostracized" for supporting Elhifny--for $400,000 to put an end to the "lengthy and expensive litigation."
