A U.S. District Judge has refused to dismiss a lawsuit brought by a Michigan man against the government bailout of failing insurance giant, American International Group (AIG). The man’s lawsuit, filed in December 2008 in Washtenaw County, argues that the bailout is illegal because it violated the Constitution through the promotion of a particular religion.
Specifically, the Michigan man believes that the government promoted religion through its bailout because AIG has financial products that comply with the principles of Sharia in the Islamic religion. The government maintains that the bailout was not a promotion or endorsement of any religion.
