Muslim Charity Sues Bank Over Account Closure

A Michigan-based Muslim charity is suing a major Detroit bank over its plan to close the charity's accounts. Life for Relief and Development was raided by the FBI and IRS in September, but has not been charged with a crime. The group believes Comerica Bank is discriminating on the basis of the charity's Muslim affiliation.
