Abercrombie & Fitch Mistreat Disabled Girl

Charming story about Abercrombie & Fitch treating a girl with Autism like a reject.
Four years after Abercrombie & Fitch refused to let a teenager help her autistic sister try on clothes at its Mall of America store, state officials have fined the company $115,264 for discriminating against a disabled person.

The fine was levied in June but made public this month.
Here is the full story.
