If religion wasn't part of the law then courts wouldn't be able to order the city to pay them. Like it or not but it was their right to sue and the court thinks that they are right and that the city didn't follow the law.
I was referring to the not wanting to take off their hijabs. They're obstructing the police from doing their work properly.
If they can get some easy money out of a bad law, good for them. But this shows that this law is flawed, and needs to be changed. The concept of 'religious freedom' is a bit pointless.
