Good find, Streak. The key paragraph:

As long as a provision in Jewish law, canon law or sharia does not offend our constitutional protections and public policy, courts will consider it. Otherwise, courts would not consider it. In other words, foreign law or religious law in American courts is considered within American constitutional strictures.

Pretty much all there is to say on the matter.

Argh. That was supposed to be Smitty. I didn't know Mrs Smitty was still signed in.

No worries. Unless Mrs. Smitty doesn't want to be confused with you. :)

She could do a lot worse than be confused with such an upstanding, driven, hyper-intelligent being such as I.

(she's not looking, is she?)
