Aida Shyef Al-Kadi, right, of St. Louis Park, got a hug from Asma Mohammed, advocacy director at Reviving the Islamic Sisterhood for Empowerment, after the press conference at CAIR-MN headquarters.

A six-figure settlement and sweeping changes in how female Muslim inmates are treated in Minnesota are among the results of a lawsuit after Ramsey County jailers forced a woman to remove her hijab and undress following her arrest over a traffic offense.

Aida Shyef Al-Kadi of St. Louis Park appeared at a news conference Tuesday with her attorneys at the Minneapolis headquarters of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to announce the settlement approved late last month in U.S. District Court by Judge John Tunheim.
