The Threat

As reported by Business Insider, March 23, 2017, the NCAA threatened to “remove from consideration all bids to host championship events in North Carolina if the law isn’t repealed by mid-April, when event sites are selected.”

The Facts

  1. The NCAA headquarters is located in Indianapolis, Indiana.
  2. The state threatened is North Carolina
  3. Any and all business conducted by the NCAA in North Carolina is interstate commerce
  4. The threat to deny business to the people of North Carolina is a violation of the Interstate Commerce Clause, Article I, Section 8, clause 3.
  5. The threat violates 18 U.S. Code § 1951

The Law

18 U.S. Code § 1951 – Interference with commerce by threats or violence

The NCAA, by virtue of its threat to withhold business from the state of North Carolina, violates the law.

Under threat of withholding commerce with the state of North Carolina, that state’s legislature will repeal a law (HB2) that was passed to protect vulnerable women and children from sexual predators who in the guise of or pretense of being ‘transgender’ enter places intended to preserve the privacy of women and children.

The Question

What will you do, General Sessions? Will there be an investigation of this apparent violation of federal law?

Thank you,

  1. Good letter. I agree with you completely. Texas is the next state being threatened over this insanity. If the law is as you say and it has been violated then the choice is clear…enforce the law.
