[efoods]The justices on Monday reversed a lower court ruling that had allowed a lawsuit brought by Javaid Iqbal to go forward.

Mr Iqbal, from Pakistan, argued the two officials were responsible for a policy that saw him singled out for abuse on the basis of his religion and race.

The court ruled that his complaint failed to back up this claim.

Mr Iqbal spent some six months in solitary confinement in a federal prison in Brooklyn in 2002.
