California Board of Directors Diversity Bill Signed Into Law, Challenged by Lawsuit | The D&O Diary

In addition to the recent litigation, efforts to advance board racial diversity have included legislation.

As discussed below, even though the law has only been in place for a few days, a lawsuit challenging the bill has already been filed.
