American Laws for American Courts

American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) is model legislation that was drafted by David Yerushalmi of the American Freedom Law Center.  ALAC prohibits the application of foreign law, including, but not limited to sharia (Islamic law), when it would violate fundamental constitutional rights such as due process and equal protection.  A federal law already prohibits the application of such foreign laws in our courts when it violates the First Amendment. 


In sum, ALAC simply prevents a state court judge from applying any foreign law, including sharia, when doing so would violate a party’s fundamental constitutional right.


By signing this petition, I hereby support legislation based on the American Laws for American Courts model legislation.  As my political representative, you took an oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.  Now is the time to act upon that oath.  Now is the day to protect our liberty and rights by introducing ALAC legislation to protect the citizens of our State from the harmful and unconstitutional effects of foreign laws.
