Proposed Boycott of AALS Annual Meeting Succeeds

By earlier post, I explained why I would support a proposed boycott of the AALS annual meeting. Many of the most important events were to be held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, whose owner is one of the principal sponsors of a California initiative to ban gay marriage. I did not want my money ending up in Mr. Manchester's pockets.

The AALS has now moved those events to the Marriott.

I do not know how the sponsors of the proposed boycott will respond, but in my view the proposed boycott has already succeeded and is no longer necessary. (I seriously doubt that the AALS will book the Manchester Grand Hyatt for future meetings.)
