US States Looking To Ban Foreign Laws

A growing amount of US states are seeking to ban the applicability of foreign law, believing it to exert too much influence over US courts reports the USA today.

North Carolina last month became the seventh state to pass such legislation following in the footsteps of Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Tennessee.

The law bars judges from considering foreign law in their decisions, including sharia.

Critics argue the steps are unnecessary and could complicate international business and contract law together with international prenuptial agreements.
