OKLAHOMA CITY — A US Muslim on Thursdsay filed a federal lawsuit to block a state constitutional amendment overwhelmingly approved by voters in Tuesday's election that would prohibit state courts from considering international law or Islamic law when deciding cases.

The lawsuit, filed in US District Court in Oklahoma City, seeks a temporary retraining order and injunction to block the election results from being certified by the state Election Board. Among other things, the lawsuit alleges the ballot measure transforms Oklahoma's Constitution into "an enduring condemnation" of Islam by singling it out for special restrictions by barring Islamic law, also known as Sharia law
