Congratulations to Chelsea Sizemore, whose Enforcing Islamic Mahr Agreements: The American Judge’s Interpretational Dilemma, 18 Geo. Mason L. Rev. 1085 (2011), was extensively quoted and relied on by the case I discuss here, and Lindsey Blenkhorn, whose Islamic Marriage Contracts in American Courts: Interpreting Mahr Agreements as Prenuptials and Their Effect on Muslim Women, 76 S. Cal. L. Rev. 189 (2002), was also cited by the case. Still further evidence that student-written scholarship can be practically useful, not just to other scholars but to judges as well.
