Student comment quoted in recent case

Congratulations to Chelsea Sizemore, George Mason Law Review’s 2011-2012 Senior Notes Editor, whose Enforcing Islamic Mahr Agreements: The American Judge’s Interpretational Dilemma, 18 Geo. Mason L. Rev. 1085 (2011), was extensively quoted and relied upon in a recent case.  In Soleimani v. Soleimani (Kan. Dist. Ct., Johnson Cty., No. 11CV4668, Aug. 28, 2012), the court based several of its reasons for refusing to enforce an Islamic premarital agreement on information contained in Chelsea’s comment.  The court’s reliance on Chelsea’s work demonstrates the excellence of her scholarship and George Mason Law Review’s commitment to substantively impacting the legal profession.
