A 22-year-old London law student with a prosthetic arm has succeeded in her case against retailer Abercrombie & Fitch. Riam Dean claimed she was wrongfully dismissed because of her disability. Store management assigned Dean to the stockroom, then later fired her for violating the clothing store's "look policy" by wearing a cardigan to cover her prosthesis. A London tribunal agreed Dean was wrongfully dismissed and awarded her compensation but did not uphold a charge of disability discrimination.
