As a quick update to our item on the boycott of this year's Association of American Law Schools convention in San Diego, we've got this: The National Law Journal is reporting that the protesters have prevailed.
Originally objecting to the the AALS' choice of venue in San Diego, because of its owner's financial support of Prop. 8 and the AALS' group members' commitment to equal rights, the protesters demanded that AALS reconsider its decision and move the conference to an alternate location. AALS relented, and has moved its events over to the San Diego Marriott Hotel.
Small bit of irony here: the new venue was developed (but is not currently owned by) Douglas Manchester, the same businessman the protesters rejected initially.
