As reported today by CNN, the family of Ahmad Khan Rahami-- the alleged New York/ New Jersey bomber-- filed a federal lawsuit in 2011 claiming religious, racial and national origin discrimination by Elizabeth, New Jersey and its police department.  At issue was the city's repeated attempts to apply a 10:00 pm closing ordinance to the Rahami's chicken restaurant, while the family contended that the restaurant came within one of the exemptions in the ordinance.  Here is the full text of the complaint filed by the family in Rahami v. City of Elizabeth,(D NJ, filed 4/6/2011). Alleged bomber Ahmad Rahami was not one of the named plaintiffs in the case.
