Settlement reached in imams case

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Six imams who were removed from a US Airways flight bound for Phoenix have reached a tentative settlement of their discrimination lawsuit.

The group's attorney says all sides agreed to the settlement, but details still need to be finalized and approved by a federal judge.

The attorney didn't share the terms of the agreement but said all six imams were satisfied with it.

The group was pulled from the Phoenix-bound flight after passengers reported what they considered suspicious behavior.
