Amawi, et al. v. Pflugerville Independent School District, et al.

December 6, 2019
Court: United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit

FIRE joined an amicus brief with the Institute for Free Speech, arguing that the Fifth Circuit should uphold a district court ruling invalidating a Texas law requiring contractors with state agencies to pledge not to boycott Israel. IFS and FIRE argued that the district court correctly held the law unconstitutional on its face in prohibiting protected political boycotts.
