THORNWOOD, N.Y. -- The owner of Wholesale Fuels in Thornwood and several gas stations and convenience stores in other parts of Westchester filed a complaint accusing  two state Supreme Court justices of denying him his civil rights, according to the Westchester County Business Journal. 

Sammy Eljamal's five-part complaint names Justices Lester B. Adler and Joan B. Lefkowitz and alleges they discriminated against him due to his Muslim and Palestinian heritage, WCBJ reported.

In his complaint, Eljamal said the verdict in the case was beyond what was usual or reasonable, according to WCBJ.
