I'm a little confused by this story. If the settlement had already been agreed on by the parties concerned, then what was the purpose of the lawsuit? Is this just a poke of the camel's nose under the tent in an effort to get Sharia accepted in U.S. Courts?
Oklahoma looks better and better. Because while that one was struck down, they're trying again with HB1552:
any court action will be “void and unenforceable” if the court ruling is based “on any law, rule, legal code or system that would not grant the parties affected by the ruling or decision the same fundamental liberties, rights, and privileges granted under the United States and Oklahoma Constitutions.”
In a statement sent to CapitolBeatOK, Kern said, “This legislation reinforces and puts in statute the intent of S.Q. 755 and will prevent the documented creep of foreign and offensive laws being recognized by state and federal courts. Basically, this will require that American courts rely on American law.”
Most of Europe has finally come to the realization that multiculturalism doesn't work. Are these activist judges going to be allowed to completely destroy our legal system before they wake up?
