State to Appeal SQ 755 Ruling (Dec 02, 2010)

The state of Oklahoma will appeal a federal judge’s ruling that blocks State Question 755 from becoming a part of the state Constitution. The attorney general's office filed a notice of appeal in the Oklahoma City federal court late Wednesday.

More than 70 percent of voters approved the referendum, which would prevent state courts from using Islamic law or international law when deciding cases.

U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange earlier this week granted a preliminary injunction that prevents the state from certifying the results of the November election.

Muneer Awad, the executive director of the Oklahoma Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, sued to have the proposal blocked saying the Sharia law ban is unconstitutional.
