ACLU challenges Arizona’s anti-BDS law

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is challenging the constitutionality of an Arizona law that requires all government contactors to certify they are not participating in boycotts of Israel.

The ACLU filed the suit last month on behalf of Flagstaff attorney Mikkel Jordahl, who contracts with Coconino County to provide legal services to incarcerated individuals. The complaint argues that the Arizona law violates the First and 14th amendments to the U.S. Constitution by forcing Jordahl’s firm and other contractors “to disavow their participation in political boycotts.”
