Trial Set for Judicial Watch Challenge to California’s Gender Quota
When it comes to gender quotas, there really is no limit. Judicial Watch is now in court fighting a California state law “requiring boards of directors to have a certain number of women,” a policy which Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton states is “prohibited by the federal constitution but more specifically by the California Constitution.” As Fitton adds in the Judicial Watch Weekly Update, “the Left doesn’t care, they want to upend decades of law prohibiting discrimination to advance … their critical theory agenda.” “When you hear the Left say they’re against sex discrimination, that’s not true,” Fitton states. “They’re supporting discrimination in this law.”
Fitton says the California quota “shows you the insanity” of lawmakers who wish to “award benefits and mandate special treatment based on immutable characteristics, which is something we had all settled shouldn’t be done for over the last 50 years.”
“It’s outrageous discrimination,” Fitton continues. “The state of California tried to get our case thrown out. The court said no.”
On December 1, Judicial Watch lawyers are scheduled to go to trial to challenge the law on behalf of California taxpayers.
