Though the woman who wore it has died, a suit against the Metropolitan Transportation Authority over the donning of a Muslim headscarf presses on.

In 2005, Stephanie Lewis said she was fired by the MTA after she refused to put an agency logo on her khimar, a religious head-covering. She died in 2012, but a Federal Judge March 31 ruled that her suit, now carried on by her husband, can continue.
