Comment: Judge Files Suit Against DOJ

Payvand Iranian News reports that a judge has filed a suit against
the DOJ for violating the First Amendment and Civil Rights Act of 1964.

In this suit, Judge Tabaddor challenges an order that indefinitely recuses her from hearing cases involving Iranian nationals, citing that the order violates her First Amendment rights of free speech and association. The suit also notes that the order is racially discriminatory under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The suit, Tabaddor v. Holder et al., charges that the DOJ based its disqualification order on racially-motivated and discriminatory criteria, specifically Judge Tabaddor's Iranian heritage and her leadership role within the Iranian American community.
