Sharia ban resurfaces in Senate
by Laura Leslie
North Carolina lawmakers are once again weighing a bill to ban the "application of foreign law" in family law cases in state courts.
In the Senate Judiciary 1 Committee Thursday, a bill regarding metering agreements for renters was gutted and amended to become the Sharia law ban that passed the House earlier this session.
The new House Bill 522 does not specifically mention Islamic Law or "Sharia," but it was the topic of a supporting handout provided to the panel by House sponsor Rep. Chris Whitmire, R-Transylvania.
