A. Azimi, an Afghan-born Muslim who lives in Maine, successfully sued his employer, a meat-processing company, for discrimination. The jury in a US district court decided that Azimi had been subjected to an enivornment "hostile to his race, religion or ethnic origin" by the company. Nevertheless, he was not awarded any damages. Azimi appealed the ruling, but had his appeal rejected by the 1st US Circuit Court of Appeals.
Now the US Supreme Court has refused to hear out the case (Associated Press).
So what is the point of finding the company guilty of exposing Azimi to a hostile environment if it is not actually meant to compensate the victim?
