 Further, the Court found that "putting more women on boards demonstrated that the Legislature's actual purpose was gender-balancing, not remedying discrimination."

Before you accidentally kick the hornet's nest, if there were actual examples of those types of discrimination I think we'd all want that to be remedied and reconciled. Per the judge's decision: "There is no compelling governmental interest in remedying discrimination in the board selection process because neither the Legislature nor Defendant could identify any specific, purposeful, intentional and unlawful discrimination to be remedied."

Please do affirmative action next. If they want diversity, they can do it by income levels and not race

I am sure this is an unpopular opinion but I do think race should be a factor enrollment decisions and hiring decisions but only when there is a small difference in characteristics of the candidates.  I do not support hiring unqualified candidates or accepting unqualified students.  This would not help the school/company or the individual.

The government should stay out of this.  Mandating diversity would not have any impact on board decisions anyway.   I am very skeptical about board decisions in general.

Couple questions:

1. Why would you say gov should stay out of this?

2. How do you differentiate where gov should stay in vs. stay out of?

3. Isn't this the point of the courts? To come to a decsion as apolitically as possible? I'd argue this is not really a 'gov decision' to the extent that you say. Ultimately as with anything, the courts have a say

Government should stay out of everything.  I would honestly be fine paying all of the dead weight salaries of existing government employees to have them all sit in a room somewehre and jerk each other off.
