U. California Davis BDS Bill Tossed by Student Court

An Israel divestment resolution passed at the University of California Davis last month by the student senate was overturned on Feb. 19 by the university’s Court of Associated Students.

The court ruled 5-0 with one abstention in favor of Jonathan Mitchell, who had filed a case with the court contending that the Associated Students U.C. Davis had failed to adhere to its own constitution in passing the Israel divestment resolution 8-2 with two abstentions on Jan. 29.

The court ruling found that any legislation passed by the senate, even those on politically related issues, “can and must be primarily concerning student welfare.” The court found the divestment resolution “to be PRIMARILY a political document and did not deal with student welfare to the extent that allowed the ASUCD Senate jurisdiction to pass.”
