The family law cases cited in the SLASC show that United States courts are actually less solicitous of Shari'a than is often suggested precisely because of this public policy boundary.
We could go on in our analysis of the cases in the SLASC, but simply put, the anti-Shari'a campaign it has inspired seems to be "a solution in search of a problem."

The Act is reproduced as Appendix B to SLASC and SLASC states that "[v]ersions of the" law have "passed into law in Tennessee, Louisiana and Arizona." SLASC, supra note 38, at 614-615.

SLASC defines "Highly Relevant" as "upon legal review [the cases] were found to involve Shariah in a conflict of law with the Constitutional principles or state public policy at the trial court or appellate court level." Id.
