Muslim inmates sue Cass County Jail, claim they were fed pork


FARGO—Four Muslim inmates have sued the Cass County Jail and several of its jailers, claiming they secretly were fed pork, according to a complaint filed in federal court.

Jail officials declared its meals were pork-free in November 2015, according to the complaint, but continued pork to serve inmates, including Muslims whose religion prohibits them from eating pork, the inmates allege in their hand-written lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Fargo.

"We believe that having kitchen staff prepare separate meals for Muslim inmates was becoming a hassle and affecting their budget," the complaint said.
