BALTIMORE -- A radiologist who was kicked out of the University of Maryland Medical Center after he performed a Muslim ritual has filed a $30 million lawsuit against the hospital.
The suit said Dr. Mohammed Hussain was at the hospital last month to undergo surgery. He was washing his hands and feet in a sink in a lobby bathroom when a security guard came in and ordered him to get out "immediately or else."
Hussain's lawyer, David Ellin, said the guard made references to Hussain as if he were a terrorist and hurled racial epithets at him. He said Hussain was pushed down a hallway and into the custody of another security guard, who escorted him outside.
