So, what does the law actually say?

It’s only a page and a half long, and it’s pretty broad. Looks like any sort of beth din arbitration will be out too:

House Substitute for SENATE BILL No. 79


Sec. 2. As used in this act, ‘‘foreign law,’’ ‘‘legal code’’ or ‘‘system’’
means any law, legal code or system of a jurisdiction outside of any state
or territory of the United States, including, but not limited to, interna-
tional organizations and tribunals and applied by that jurisdiction’s courts,
administrative bodies or other formal or informal tribunals.
