    California's women on boards law is unconstitutional

    Naturally.

    California's women on boards law is unconstitutional

    A Los Angeles judge has ruled that California’s landmark law requiring women on corporate boards is unconstitutional.

    Superior Court Judge Maureen Duffy-Lewis said the law that would have required boards have up to three female directors by this year violated the right to equal treatment. The ruling was dated Friday.

    The conservative legal group Judicial Watch had challenged the law, claiming it was illegal to use taxpayer funds to enforce a law that violates the equal protection clause of the California Constitution by mandating a gender-based quota.

    The law was on shaky ground from the get-go with a legislative analysis saying it could be difficult to defend and then-Gov. Jerry Brown saying he was signing it despite the potential for it to be overturned by a court. Brown said he signed the bill to send a message during the #MeToo era....

    And unnecessary. This is the sort of cheap pandering that Brown and now Newsom are known for.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    And there is much more of this in the works in CA I can tell you.


    Bottom line the SCOTUS ruled against "Quotas" a long time ago. AA is only permitted when it is fuzzy and I still say that violates equal protection.

    To be frank, I don't think Brown or Newsom genuinely care. It's a political stunt. Hey, look at me! I care!

    Soon corporate boards will have several hundred people serving. This will be required to cover all of the identity classes we now face. Lets see, women, blacks, Hispanics, Pacific Islanders, gays, transgenders, little people, Wiccans, homeless. Did I leave out any important groups?

    ANd with Identity Politics, there are infinite intersections of those. Homeless black female gay Wiccans--well maybe only one of those, but he/she/it needs representation!
