Wyoming legislation targets Islamic, international law
Wyoming judges wouldn't be allowed to consider Islamic law or international law when making rulings, under a proposed state constitutional amendment introduced this week.
To date, no Wyoming court rulings have been based on Islamic law, or Shariah. But state Rep. Gerald Gay, R-Casper, said his proposed constitutional amendment, House Joint Resolution 8, is meant as a "pre-emptive strike" to ensure judges don't rely on Shariah in cases involving, for example, arranged marriages, "honor killings" or usury cases.
