Koran-Burning New Jersey Transit Employee Gets Job Back + Back Pay + $25,000 Settlement

So reports the New York Daily News; for more on the story from when the transit worker was fired for burning pages from the Koran to protest a planned Islamic center near Ground Zero, see this post. The New York Daily News article reports that “The ACLU filed suit on Fenton’s behalf, and the deal was brokered before the case went to trial. The state also agreed to reimburse the ACLU for a $25,000 legal tab.” (That is in addition to the “$25,000 for pain and suffering” to be paid to the transit worker, Derek Fenton, and to the back pay that Fenton would be getting.)
