A Kansas district court is the first to recognize the possible application of the American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) law in a case where a party sought to enforce a sharia-law based contract. ALAC was adopted in Kansas earlier this year and it is based upon the model legislation drafted by AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi.
Kansas District Court Cites “American Laws for American Courts,” Rejects Sharia23 09 2012
I had to 'reblog' this post from Creeping Sharia. I was honored and humbled over the last two years to be a part of the team responsible for passage of ALAC in Kansas. As far as I know this is the first case to cite "American Laws for American and Kansas Courts". While one may "feel" the woman in this case was treated unfairly by the court in light of her abusive marriage, keep in mind that the court correctly applied and cited the law as intended, placing Kansas law over the authority of Sharia in the courtroom. Just the fact that the divorce had already been done according to Kansas Law, and this woman lives in Kansas, USA, instead of Iran under Sharia, makes her the huge "winner"! H/T to Creeping Sharia!
