Court rules Californian racial and LGBT quotas for corporate boards unconstitutional

Most Popular

A Californian court has struck down as unconstitutional the state government’s requirement that companies have certain racial and sexual preference quotas on their boards.

The lawsuit, Robin Crest et al v The Secretary of State for California was filed by Judicial Watch, an American conservative activist group, on behalf of the taxpayers of California.

The original case was filed in October 2020, and claimed California Assembly Bill 979 (AB 979) breached the state’s constitution. AB 979 required boards of directors of California-based, publicly held domestic or foreign corporations satisfy a racial, ethnic, and LGBT quota by the end of the 2021 calendar year.

“This historic California court decision declared unconstitutional one of the most blatant and significant attacks in the modern era on constitutional prohibitions against discrimination,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

“In its ruling today, the court upheld the core American value of equal protection under the law.”

  1. Good. Quotas and tokenism are discrimination. People need to be judged on their MERITS not on their ‘identity’.
