I know, there’s a lot of competition, but this one has to be up there. A New Jersey judge rules that Moroccan Muslims are allowed to rape their wives:
This court does not feel that, under the circumstances, that this defendant had a criminal desire to or intent to sexually assault or to sexually contact the plaintiff when he did. The court believes that he was operating under his belief that it is, as the husband, his desire to have sex when and whether he wanted to, was something that was consistent with his practices and it was something that was not prohibited.
This wasn’t even a criminal case. The judge was denying a restraining order. Fortunately, sanity prevailed on appeal.
