Deal approved in Muslims' suit against McDonald's

DETROIT (AP) — A judge has finalized a $700,000 settlement between McDonald's and members of Michigan's Muslim community over claims a Detroit-area restaurant falsely advertised food as prepared according to Islamic law.

Wayne County Circuit Judge Kathleen Macdonald gave the OK at a hearing Wednesday. She's overseen the case and refereed objections from outside groups since a preliminary deal was announced in January.

Ahmed Ahmed, the Dearborn Heights man who represents plaintiffs in the class-action, claims he bought a chicken sandwich in September 2011 at a Dearborn McDonald's but found it wasn't halal.

The settlement calls for distributing the money to Ahmed, a Detroit health clinic, Dearborn's Arab American National Museum and Ahmed's lawyers.

Dearborn attorney Majed Moughni is among the objectors. He says the settlement doesn't help those most affected.
