TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida is becoming the eighth state to outlaw the use of foreign law in the state’s courts under a bill signed by Gov. Rick Scott.
Scott signed the measure (SB 386) on Monday.
It would prohibit judges from applying from applying foreign laws in cases involving family law, including divorce, alimony, child support and child custody.
It would also prevent some judgments from foreign courts to be considered in state courts.
The measure does not single out specific religions but critics said the law is intended to target a specific form of law called Shariah that is practiced in courts in some Muslim countries.
Screw the “critics.” You like Shariah? Go live in a country that enforces it.
