Deportation Causes Business Headaches

DALLAS (CN) - Salons of Addison sued New Horizon Community Investment, its partner in a hair salon business, claiming that New Horizon's founder had his U.S. citizenship revoked for being on the board of directors of the Holy Land Foundation. After Rasmi Almallah was deported, New Horizon allegedly reneged on promises, brought in new people who "insinuated themselves into the management of Salon Boutique," and made it impossible for the plaintiff to conduct business.

The Bush administration shut down the Holy Land Foundation for its alleged support of Hamas. The Foundation claimed to be the largest Islamic charitable foundation in the United States.

Plaintiff demands damages for breach of contract, or at least an order dissolving the partnership. It is represented in Dallas County Court by Robert Maris.
