Missouri Governor Vetoes Unnecessary Ban on Foreign Law

Missouri Governor Vetoes Unnecessary Ban on Foreign Law

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon made the right call on Monday when he vetoed a bill that would have prevented courts from considering foreign law in their decisions. Governor Nixon should be praised for this action, which respects the principles enshrined in our Constitution as well as two hundred years of judicial precedent, and will protect Missourians from the unintended but very negative consequences of such a bill.
