I will bet you that the guy could and should win that one on appeal. The line, "Judge Mark Martin, an Iraq war veteran and a convert to Islam, threw the case out in what appears to be an invocation of Sharia law." means that the judge should have recused himself from this case. He had an obvious pre-disposed bias in favor of something that is not recognized by American law.
I would like to see the final results of this case, but unfortunately the news media rarely follows up on most cases.
