Circuit Court Judge Richard A. Nielson should be tarred, feathered, and run out of town with a pitch fork up his A$$!
That is all these muzzzies need..and now the camels’ nose is under the tent so it is a matter of time before it is in more states..this is not good.
Whatever happened to that “separation of church and state” thing?
this judge needs to be disbarred and shipped to sibera
I just sent an email to the governor of Florida about this nonsense. That judge needs to be replaced.
It’s separation of Christian Church and State.... everything else is a protected minority.
Jeb Bush appointee:
But, reading the order, it appears that Judge Nielson of the 13th Judicial Circuit Civil Division is ruling on a motion to submit it to the arbiter. Which would tell me that this is the agreement between the two parties under whatever contract they had.
However, this other thread spells out why even that is problematical:
Any Florida lawyers or folks know more on this?
The next time a thug of any one religion kills another man of another religion for his wallet can his defense claim Sharia law and the passage to “Kill the Infidel Wherever you find them!” as their defense?
Judges can be removed for bad behavior.
I’d say this qualifies.
The people need some sort of remedy against rogue judges. At present we do not have any, and that is some sort of an oversight on the part of the founding fathers and the constitution generally.
The mythical “separation of church and state” only applies to Christianity.
Winning The Future?
Am cool with it.
Suit between muzzies.... just give ‘em some cheap bomb belts and let them fight it out in a closed military base, closed stadium in one of our ghettos, or some other stage that’s easy to clean up with bulldozers.
If you look into the history judges were removed for bad behavior. One was removed for swearing in the courtroom. Another was for ignoring an act of Congress.
TV. Keep watching it because it will change your world. It put a islamic in the white hut. Prince Al Waleed - the largest shareholder in Fox is the money behind the islamic invasion of the USA along with his uncle.
You're right. This isn't about religion, it's about law. And, in this particular instance, it's about two elements of contract law: Binding arbitration, and something that is known as the choice of law doctrine.
Here's the short moral of the story. If you do not wish Sharia law (or Catholic Canon Law, or Jewish Law) to be applied to contract disputes that you have in contract where you're (willfully) party to binding arbitration under a particular choice of law, THEN DON'T SIGN THE CONTRACT.
The people on this thread that are "calling the governor" or pining to have the judge impeached can't even begin to understand the stupidity they're conveying, apparently. The judge did EXACTLY what he should have under the obligations of existing contract law. In this country, contracts have consequences. You should enter them carefully.
Stop making sense!
Yes but isn’t arbitration suppose to secular in nature. Arbitration while yes is outside of the court system and part of contracts that people agree upon but the arbitration is still based on the laws in the jurisdiction the contract was drafted.
Yes contracts are binding in this country with serious consequences but they also are only binding if legal! Contracts have to be within the laws of the jurisdiction.
We don’t subject Catholic institutions to Canon Law in this country. I do not know of any Catholic institutions or individuals that have litigated an issue under a Catholic arbitration system. Correct me if I am wrong though.
A nice breath of fresh air.
The choice of law doctrine essentially says that any body of law (including a religious body of law) can be used in the contract, and/or in private arbitration.
"but the arbitration is still based on the laws in the jurisdiction the contract was drafted."
Right, unless something else is stipulated in the contract, as it must have been here.
"Yes contracts are binding in this country with serious consequences but they also are only binding if legal! Contracts have to be within the laws of the jurisdiction."
Federal law (Federal Arbitration Act) demands that state court adhere to arbitration stipulations in contract law.
"We dont subject Catholic institutions to Canon Law in this country."
Catholic & Jewish laws are FREQUENTLY stipulated in contract as a choice of law. If you're doing business in Israel as an American company, or if your doing business in the US with Israeli companies, I promise you that you're going to be signing some contracts that stipulate binding arbitration that applies Jewish law in that binding arbitration. It happens everyday in courts all across the country.
In addition to business contract law, some marriage contracts (and other family law agreements) will stipulate certain religious laws be applied. This is a bit more complicated, so I won't go into it, but it happens. A lot.
Been a long time since I said, “saw it off and let it float away.” seems apropos again.
This might be one of the dumbest judges ever.
frantzie, frantzie frantzie .. you are one tedious son of a gun
You know, I saw what probably was the fourth thread (of five) and within, perhaps 2 minutes, had determined this was primarily a decision about an arbitration path for the litigants. Titles of threads seem to be enough information for far too many people.
You sir have more sense than most on this thread.
