Pierce County Jail accommodating Muslim inmates

The Associated Press

TACOMA — The American Civil Liberties Union says the Pierce County Jail has agreed to make changes to accommodate Muslim inmates.

They include allowing prayer rugs and brimless caps that had been prohibited and making halal meals available, similar to kosher food for Jewish inmates.

The ACLU said Wednesday the new policies settle a lawsuit filed two years ago in federal court in Tacoma. As part of the settlement Pierce County paid $200,000 in legal fees and costs.
