In the wake of the American Studies Association (ASA) December-announced boycott of Israel and Israeli universities, Shurat Hadin has threatened to sue the ASA for unlawful discrimination.

Shurat Hadin - Israel Law Center on Thursday sent a letter to the ASA threatening to sue initiate a lawsuit on behalf of various Israeli academics, arguing that the ASA boycott violates both international, federal and state laws.

The distributed letter specifically mentioned a number of New York state laws against discrimination which make it unlawful discrimination "for any person to boycott or blacklist, or to refuse to buy from, sell to or trade with, or otherwise discriminate against any person, because of the race, creed, color, national origin."
