I mentioned a Wikisource-specific old decision, but that's always been 
the established policy on all WMF wikis, which has just been confirmed 
by the new terms of use draft: «For clarity, applicable law includes at 
least the laws of the United States of America» 
I'm not expressing an opinion about this, I've just remembered that 
you're not trying to prevent a possible future decision but to overturn 
an old established one, so it will be more difficult than you envision.
