The lawyer representing six imams who are suing an airline and unknown "John Doe" passengers should be removed from his position as a New York City commissioner on human rights, said a state assemblyman.
"When it comes to suspicious or potentially terrorist activity, New Yorkers are encouraged to say something if they see something," said Rory I. Lancman, assemblyman from Queens.
"Before they do so, I think they have a right to know that they won't be sued by their own human rights commissioner, Omar Mohammedi," said Mr. Lancman.
Mr. Lancman has asked Mayor Michael Bloomberg to demand that Mr. Mohammedi to resign his seat.
Although the lawsuit was filed March 12 in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis, an official with U.S. Airways said the airline is unable to respond because Mr. Mohammedi has not officially served the company with the legal papers.
Mr. Lancman, who is a lawyer, said failure to serve papers could result in a dismissal of the suit.
