    United States’ first female Muslim judge found dead in Hudson River

    From 2017 - just appeared on my news list:


    United States’ first female Muslim judge found dead in Hudson River

    PUBLISHED THU, APR 13 2017

    A groundbreaking black jurist who became the first Muslim woman to serve as a U.S. judge was found dead in New York’s Hudson River on Wednesday, police said.

    Sheila Abdus-Salaam, a 65-year-old associate judge of New York’s highest court, was found floating off Manhattan’s west side at about 1:45 p.m. EDT (1545 GMT), a police spokesman said.

    Police pulled Abdus-Salaam’s fully clothed body from the water and she was pronounced dead at the scene. Her family identified her and an autopsy would determine the cause of death, the spokesman said.

    Abdus-Salaam, a native of Washington, D.C., became the first African-American woman appointed to the Court of Appeals when Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo named her to the state’s high court in 2013.

    “Justice Sheila Abdus-Salaam was a trailblazing jurist whose life in public service was in pursuit of a more fair and more just New York for all,” Cuomo said in a statement.

    The Princeton Encyclopedia of American Political History said Abdus-Salaam was the first female Muslim to serve as a U.S. judge.

    Citing unidentified sources, the New York Post reported that Abdus-Salaam had been reported missing from her New York home earlier on Wednesday. Attempts to reach her family were unsuccessful.

    A graduate of Barnard College and Columbia Law School, Abdus-Salaam started her law career with East Brooklyn Legal Services and served as a New York state assistant attorney general, according to the Court of Appeals website.

    She held a series of judicial posts after being elected to a New York City judgeship in 1991.

    Oh Allah, protect the Muslims from the evil and may Allah (Subhanahu Wa talaa) raise her high level in Jannaa Ameen. Do you have other news about Muslim men and women who are been oppressed, killed, tortured posted here so that we can have their voices heard and show awareness of the world around us? The media will not cover up the voiceless and unheard oppressed people, boys and girls alike. But if we can post them here...we can at least give their voices to the world to hear them and show awareness to the oppressed and silent people.
