Score one for haircuts

Posted By on Mon, Aug 11, 2008 at 2:10 PM

The kid in Eureka we mentioned yesterday may be able to let his hair grow now and still play basketball, but no such luck for Michael Fegans, an Arkanas prison inmate. Fegans sued prison officials for Kosher meals and an exemption from grooming rules in the name of his religion, the Assemblies of Yahweh. He wanted a beard and untrimmed hair. A district court had upheld his dietary request but refused his grooming request. Today, the 8th Circuit upheld the district court. The court said limits on hair were justified on security grounds.
