CA News: Judge Rules Against Law Regarding Women on Boards

A state judge in Los Angeles has ruled that California`s landmark law requiring women on corporate boards is unconstitutional.

Superior Court Judge Maureen Duffy-Lewis ruled Friday the law violated the equal protection clause of the state constitution by mandating a gender-based quota.

The law required company boards with five directors must have two women and boards with six or more members must have three women.
