Appeals court to rehear Arkansas’ Israel boycott pledge case

(AP) A federal appeals court says it will reconsider a panel’s ruling against an Arkansas law that requires state contractors to pledge not to boycott Israel. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday granted the state’s request that the full court rehear the case, months after a three-judge panel found the law unconstitutional.

The Arkansas Times challenged the law after a college refused to contract for advertising with the newspaper unless it signed the pledge.
