Can you tell me weather or not a Noahide can have their case judged before a Beis Din?
Technically, yes. But why? Some Noahides have asked to have their cases judged by bais din because they want to be judged according to “God’s law.” However, dinim is also God’s law! It is true that modern courts are not fulfilling dinim in the ideal way, but todays batei din are not operating ideally either (as discussed in an earlier lesson). We see that Jews and Noahide are both far from their ideals. God has nevertheless provided us both with our own, unique pathways to Him. As different as the paths may look, they both start and end in the same place: the wellspring of the holy Torah.
