A judge has dismissed the civil rights lawsuit of Muslim woman who claimed that Tulsa County sheriff’s deputies violated her constitutional rights when they refused to let her enter a courthouse because she wouldn’t remove her hijab in public when she set off a metal detector, the Tulsa World reports. 

U.S. District Judge Claire Eagan dismissed claims against four sheriff’s deputies and in her ruling said Suha Elqutt’s lawsuit “has not shown that clearly established law would have put defendants on notice that requiring a plaintiff to remove her hijab in a public place was a violation of plaintiff’s constitutional rights.”
