The Center for Constitutional Rights and other defense counsel will be arguing that Bronner v. Duggan should be dismissed, including under D.C.'s Anti-SLAPP Act, which provides for dismissal of claims that target advocacy on issues of public interest, and that are not likely to succeed. Bronner v. Duggan was filed by four American Studies Association (ASA) members against the ASA and ten individuals following the organization's passage of a resolution to endorse the call of Palestinian civil society for a boycott of Israeli academic institutions.  The Center for Constitutional Rights represents Dr. Steven Salaita in this case as part of our work supporting activists, academics, and organizations facing legal attacks for their advocacy on behalf of Palestinian rights.
