Islamic Shariah Law Court Opens in Texas to Oversee Divorce, Business and Civil Disputes
February 9, 2015
The mayor of Irving, Texas, claims that the first known Islamic Tribunal court in the United States won't have legal authority to impose Shariah law in the state.
In a statement posted on her Facebook page Friday, Irving Mayor Beth van Duyne denied that the Islamic Tribunal at the Islamic Center of Irving has garnered legal power.
"Recently, there have been rumors suggesting that the city of Irving has somehow condoned, approved or enacted the implementation of a Shariah law court in our city," wrote van Duyne.
