District Judge permanently blocks Oklahoma law forbidding sharia law in courts [Judge is an idiot]

The judge says that “upholding an individual’s constitutional rights” is more important than the will of the masses. I would agree if indeed the will of the masses violated the constitutional rights of an individual. However, I’m not sure how it’s an “individual’s constitutional right” to have a US court consider sharia or international law when adjudicating a case:

CBN NEWS – A U.S. district judge permanently blocked an Oklahoma law forbidding courts from considering Islamic or international law when deciding cases.

“While the public has an interest in the will of the voters being carried out, the court finds that the public has a more profound and long-term interest in upholding an individual’s constitutional rights,” the judge wrote according to Tulsa World.

Oklahoma voters passed the measure in 2010 with 70 percent of voters supporting it, but U.S. District Judge Vickie Miles-Legrange issued a temporary injunction after a Muslim resident sued.

On Thursday the U.S. district judge made the ban permanent when she issued an order forbidding the State Election Board from certifying the election.

This judge is an idiot. There is no "constitutional right" for U.S. citizens to be covered by Sharia law.

Where does this court clown get the authority to do this? She sounds like she might be a real ditz.

The case will proceed to the Supreme Court, where the four liberal guys will be hard-pressed to agree on this ruling. You can’t make up pieces of the Constitution and insist to the public that you have fake rights.

A native of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Miles-LaGrange, received a certificate from the University of Ghana in Accra, Ghana, West Africa in 1973, and graduated cum laude from Vassar College in 1974. She then received her J.D. from Howard University School of Law in Washington, DC in 1977. There, she was an editor of The Howard Law Journal.

Nominated by Clinton. No surprises that she ruled this way. She’s an affirmative action appointee.

The part of the law that really is stupid is the part prohibiting courts from considering international law. If a foreign company invests in a US plant, what law applies? This is just the kind of well intentioned but poorly thought out idiocy that makes us look stupid. And it would have meant much less investment in Oklahoma.

There’s a job opening for a rodeo clown in Missouri Perhaps this clown judge would be better suited for that position

The state needs to stand up to this usurpation.

It is very instructive to track how many god-awful decisions are handed down by female judges.

VERY few women possess the requisite judicial temperament.

Wait, did I type something politically incorrect?

Idiocy. When US firms invest in foreign countries, they have to abide by the laws of those countries. Foreign firms investing in the US have to abide by US laws.

And... This judge is an idiot!! I hope the OK AG appeals and ruins her life.

According to Sharia Law, women are considered subservient, second-class citizens. So how does this moron with a JD reconcile treating a woman in such a way that clearly violates the woman's constitutional right to be equal an citizen?

liberalism is a disease.

She had to go all the way to Ghana to find a college that would take her? Wow!

I used to work with a person who had an “engineering” degree from Howard. Dumb as a rock.
