McDonalds sued for false advertising by Detroit Muslim group

Lead in text: 
Two McDonalds franchises in the Detroit area advertised halal foods from September 2005 to January of this year. But Dearborn resident Ahmed Ahmed found out the chicken sandwich he bought was not halal—or cooked according to Islamic law.
DETROIT -- A judge is expected to finalize Wednesday a $700,000 settlement between McDonald's Corp. and members of Michigan's Muslim community over claims a suburban Detroit restaurant falsely advertised its food as prepared according to Islamic law.
