Newsday.com: Fla. appeals court upholds ban of veil in driver's license photo: "DAYTONA BEACH -- A Muslim woman who wanted to wear a veil in her driver's license photo must follow a Florida law that requires a picture of her full face, according to a state appeals court.

The Fifth District Court of Appeal upheld a 2003 ruling by an Orlando judge that Sultaana Freeman's right to free exercise of religion would not be burdened by the photo requirement.

'We recognized the tension created as a result of choosing between following the dictates of one's religion and the mandates of secular law,' Appellate Judge Emerson R. Thompson Jr. wrote in Friday's 15-page opinion. 'However, as long as the laws are neutral and generally applicable to the citizenry, they must be obeyed.'"
