The American Studies Association, an academic association, is facing a lawsuit from current and former members on its stance to push the Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) movement on its members:

A federal judge in Washington, D.C. gave the green light to a lawsuit filed by four current and former members of the American Studies Association against their leadership for actions related to the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) vote.

The order is a warning sign for other academic associations thinking of approving academic boycotts of Israel, a legal adviser for the plaintiffs told The College Fix.
