Posted on 11/08/2010 10:32:14 AM PST by gwjack
A temporary restraining order has been issued to block a state constitutional amendment that prohibits state courts from considering international or Islamic law when deciding cases. U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange handed down the ruling this morning in Oklahoma City following a brief hearing.

Dhimmi liberal judges who want to impose Sharia upon us.
In order to issue a TRO the judge must find that it’s more likely than not the movant will prevail on the merits of the case. I’d love to see how the Judge came to that legal conclusion.
Another idiot judge. A woman no less. Who appointed her?
Of the judges in the Western District, M-G was the only one that I had concerns about. I stilll have a hard time believing a state judge would find Sharia Law persuasive in either criminal or civil matters.
It sorta remiand me of the white lawyer making an argument to a black judge in 1983. He argued certain international law should be applied. He was in favor of the law of South Africa. I would have been too embarrassed to ask a black judge to follow non-binding South African law. Oh, this was before the end of apartheid.
What about the will of the people?
And it was done in the approved legal method, it was put out to the voters to decide.
Vickie is an idiotic, over advanced incompetent. There is no way this was ripe for a challenge. The 10th Circuit should reverse. The only way an Muslim could be harmed by this amendment would be if a Muslim asked for relief under Sharia Law and was denied. This amendment controls the courts of Oklahoma not Muslims.
Considering CAIR said they would never ask for Sharia Law in Oklahoma, how can they be harmed by this constitutional amendment?
Recall this kook.
The People Have Spoken...
(and the court said ‘sit down and shut up’....)
Is Oklahoma the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals (thank heaven they aren’t in the 9th!)? Maybe this lib judge will get a nice smackdown.
“The order was sought in a lawsuit by Oklahoma Muslim Muneer Awad. Awad is executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Oklahoma and said during the hearing that the law stigmatizes his religion.”
Presumably by the incorporation doctrine, applied to Amendment I, first clause.
Look, banning Islam is going to require a Federal constitutional amendment. That is true without question.
Work on it, by all means, but don't waste time on state or Federal legislation, because it's not going to work.
It looks like the federal courts will side with the Islamo-fascists just like they have sided with the Mexican fascists.
It is distressing to know that we have more traitors and foreign operatives trying to bring down the United States internally than we have abroad.
And the federal judiciary will give them carte blanche to do whatever they want in the United States.
No, it is in the 10th Circuit in Denver.
Ah, a quick read through her wikipedia bio confirmed what I knew even before I looked.
Remember when we had John Mohammad running around the DC area shooting people, the Mayor back in Portland was this woman who tried to prevent the FBI, etc, from INVESTIGATING local situations that might have involved John. She had several Moslem boyfriends.
The amendment is pre-emptive anyway. We have plenty of time before it is actually needed.
Sharia law is completely incompatible with the constitution anyway. If this amendment is struck down, it will be because it is unconstitutional. It will be interesting to see what twisted logic is used to support that position.
Must be a "wise black woman".
Isn’t it time for states to just tell these judges to stick their orders where the sun don’t shine?
What’s the judge gonna do...send in the Marines?
