UPDATE: Oklahoma's 'Official English' Law Challenged (Nov 10, 2010)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The author of a new constitutional amendment that makes English the official language of Oklahoma says a lawsuit challenging it is frivolous.

Rep. Randy Terrill of Moore authored State Question 751 to make English the official language of state government. It was approved in the Nov. 2 general election with more than 75 percent of the vote.

Terrill says the margin of approval indicates the measure is clearly the will of an overwhelming majority of voters. He says the lawsuit is an attempt to thwart the will of the people.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Tulsa County by University of Tulsa law professor James Thomas. It claims the measure is unconstitutional and seeks an injunction to block its enforcement.
