A federal court dismissed a discrimination suit against a Florida gun store that declared itself a “Muslim free zone.”
U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom dismissed the case on jurisdictional grounds, stating that the Islamic group that filed suit failed to provide evidence to support a claim of harm or future harm, according to the ruling filed Nov. 23. The judge also agreed that the store’s statements are protected under the First Amendment.
The judge dismissed both the lawsuit and the complaint by the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Florida, but the group has 30 days to appeal the ruling.
