Abas Idris, Muslim Security Guard, Gets $465,000 In Calif. Harassment Suit

Posted: Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO -- A San Francisco jury awarded $465,000 to a Muslim security guard who says his co-workers and supervisors called him a terrorist and an al-Qaida member.

The 27-year-old says he quit his job as a security guard for Los Angeles-based Andrews International in February 2010 after the company failed to take his complaints about harassment seriously. He had served as a guard at the Letterman Digital Arts Center in the Presidio.

An attorney for Andrews says the company had promoted Idris to a supervisory position and plans to appeal the verdict.
