Islamic law fight not over
State Rep. Sally Kern said Monday that there is a strong possibility that she will try to revive legislation opposed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Kern's House Bill 1552 had failed to get a hearing in the Senate Rules Committee. The measure would ban the use of foreign or international law in Oklahoma courts.
It was filed after a federal judge halted implementation of State Question 755, which would have banned state courts from considering Shariah law - Islamic law based on the teachings of the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad.
