A Georgia man will receive a yarmulke in prison after winning a court battle. Robert Benning was to receive the yarmulke Wednesday after the Georgia Department of Corrections determined he could wear it within the prison system, according to the Washington-based Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which aided his lawsuit. Benning filed suit against the Georgia prison system in 2002.
