At 10:30 this morning, the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California and the law offices of Hadsell Stormer Richardson & Renick are scheduled to announce "a lawsuit against a major media and entertainment company on behalf of a Muslim former employee, fired for wearing the hijab headscarf at work."

But the identity of the players has already been leaked: the Walt Disney Co. and Imane Boudlal, a former Grand Californian hotel restaurant hostess who was first told to remove her hijab and, when she refused, to wear a hat over it.
Boudlal, who is not identified in an announcement embargoed until the press conference begins in downtown Los Angeles, "faced increasing levels of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim harassment" during her two years on the job, "culminating with her dismissal in 2010 when she began wearing the hijab," according to the ACLU.
The way Boudlal preferred to look on the job and an alternative proposed by Disney management was released at the time by the worker's labor union:
