Appeals Court Revives Discrimination Suit by FBI Supervisor Bassem Youssef

Bassem Youssef, an Egyptian-born FBI supervisor, will have another chance to prove he was discriminated against after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, the Associated Press reports.

A federal appeals court, in a 3-0 vote, revived the workplace discrimination case after a judge in 2008 ruled the case was insufficient because Youssef didn’t suffer materially adverse action at work.

The appeals court will decide whether Youssef was discriminated because of false rumors that his Muslim faith prevented him from following orders in Saudi Arabia and that he had worn traditional head gear, according to the AP.

Youssef says neither is true.
