The ACLU had filed suit on behalf of a math teacher who lost a contract with the state because she boycotts Israeli companies.

The ACLU claims the law violated its client's First Amendment right by suppressing her participation in political boycotts.

The ACLU has filed a similar suit against the State of Arizona.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations says the issue is over the Boycott Divestment Sanctions movement against Israel.

"It is another example of the left-leaning establishment," she says, "who is going to challenge these laws that have been passed, these anti-BDS laws that have been passed in state legislatures."

A state legislature has a vested interest in the business of its government, she says, including the conduct of its state employees.

"And for an individual to file a lawsuit against the state challenging this law," Cardoza-Moore says, "because a teacher decides they're going to boycott on their state's dime, the individual can do and protest and boycott whatever they want on their own dime, but they cannot do it on the dime of the government, the state government."
