ARIZONA LAWMAKERS RUNNING SCARED AFTER ANTI-BOYCOTT LAW RULED UNCONSTITUTIONAL
Last year, an Arizona federal court blocked the state from enforcing its anti-boycott law, ruling that the law which requires government contractors to certify that they are not participating in boycotts of Israel or Israeli settlements in the West Bank violates the First Amendment. In response, the state appealed the court’s decision and asked the Ninth Circuit to allow it to continue enforcing the unconstitutional law pending appeal. The Ninth Circuit refused and scheduled oral arguments for the appeal for June 6. But instead of trying to defend its law in court come June 6, the state of Arizona is running scared. Today the state amended its anti-boycott statute in a transparent attempt to avoid another loss in court. The new law, signed today by Gov. Ducey, limits the anti-boycott certification to for-profit companies with more than 10 employees and government contracts worth more than $100,000. This means the law no longer applies to our clients as well as many other individuals and small businesses. BRIAN HAUSS READ MORE
