& MuslimsThe state of Oklahoma has been ordered to pay $303,333 for the attorney fees of the plaintiffs after a court fight found the states anti-Sharia law unconstitutional. The law was passed overwhelmingly by state voters in 2010, but was immediately challenged in court on the grounds it violated the First Amendment. A federal judge prevented the measure from going into effect and the U.S. Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ruling. The state has agreed to pay the legal fees over a period of three years.
