$750 Paid in Washington Prisoner's Religious Discrimination Suit

In March and April 1999, Kenneth J. Busby, a prisoner at
Washington's Airway Heights Correctional Center, worked at the Food
Factory at AHCC. Bushy is a faithful practicing Muslim, which requires
attendance at a weekly Friday prayer/worship service called Ju'mah.
At the relevant times, Busby was told he had to choose between his
religious service and his job, which resulted in his termination because
he chose the religious service. Busby's complaint alleged First Amendment
violations for refusing to accommodate his religious practice. On
February 1, 2001, the suit was settled for $750. Busby preceded pro se.
