Nasdaq’s Discriminatory Board-Quota Rule Should Be Defeated In Court

May 15, 2023

Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Gary Gensler’s attempt to politicize the whole American economy to advance his woke agenda faced a critical test last week.

The SEC’s partnership with the Nasdaq stock exchange to mandate discriminatory quotas in corporate board rooms was challenged last Monday before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. Petitioners the National Center for Public Policy Research (note: where I direct its Free Enterprise Project) and the Alliance for Fair Board Recruitment were represented by Margaret Little of the New Civil Liberties Alliance and Jonathan Berry of Boyden Grey & Associates, respectively.
