What is the Olympia co-op case? In 2011, the Olympia Food Co-op voted to adopt anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) measures at a regularly scheduled co-op board meeting, with no mention of the vote on the agenda so that members in opposition would know to attend the meeting, and in violation of specific requirements of its own board-adopted boycott policy. Five co-op members filed suit. After a series of setbacks, in May 2015, the Washington State Supreme Court held, by a vote of 9-0 that a lawsuit can proceed against Olympia Food Co-op board members, challenging their 2011 decision to boycott Israeli products. The case can now proceed. Sulkin, a founding member of McNaul Ebel Nawrot & Helgren, is a Seattle-based trial attorney whose broad practice includes commercial and business disputes involving securities, intellectual property, professional malpractice, real estate, insurance and bad faith litigation, class actions, and other complex matters.

Research Articles
and Reports
Over 50% of Jewish American college students report that they experienced or witnessed anti-Semitism on their campuses during the 2013-2014 academic year. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has announced that campus anti-Semitism “is a serious problem which warrants further attention.” Campus anti-Semitism can include subjecting Jewish students to different treatment, harassment, violence or a hostile environment. In some cases, campus anti-Semitism is related to anti-Israel sentiment. In other cases, it is not. For most purposes, we define anti-Semitism according to the U.S. Department of State definition of anti-Semitism. .
