On July 24, 2001, the Bergen County Record reported that "four months after a bouncer turned him away at the door, a 15-year-old Sikh youth has won the right to wear his religious headdress inside the Groove Lounge dance club in Lyndhurst {New Jersey]...After four months of phone calls between lawyers, the club agreed to change its 'no hats' policy," which will now exempt religious head coverings.
