Alabama Voters Approved Constitutional Amendment to Ban Sharia Law

This one is more current (November 2014): Alabama voters added an amendment to their constitution "that specifically bans the consideration of foreign codes of law, most notably Islamic Sharia Law".

Statewide Amendment 1: Called “The American and Alabama Laws for Alabama Courts Amendment,” Amendment 1 relates to the application of foreign law during the legal process involving an Alabama citizen. Foreign law refers to the laws of other countries or cultures. Currently, judges or other legal authorities discern whether foreign law is applied. Amendment 1 would create constitutional protection that foreign law is not applied if it violates the guaranteed rights of Alabama citizens.
