A federal court has prohibited officials in Oklahoma from legitimizing the results of an election from 2010. That election would have not allowed state courts from using international or Islamic law in their case decisions.

The federal court struck down the ban saying it’s illegal.

In the ruling the federal court called out Oklahoma officials saying, “At the preliminary injunction hearing they did not know of even a single instance where an Oklahoma court had applied Sharia Law or uses [of it] had resulted in concrete problems in Oklahoma.”
