Bills to ban use of foreign laws rile groups
by Kathy Adams
A proposal to ban the use of foreign law in Virginia was on its way to passing the House of Delegates, despite objections from religious groups that it was a back-door attack on Islam that could also harm followers of other faiths.
Then business interests expressed concern, and legislators decided to take a closer look.
For now, such measures have been sent back to the drawing board, but supporters said they plan to try again next year.
