The Assembly of Turkish American Associations (ATAA), Federation of Turkish American Associations (FTAA), Turkish American Community Centers (TACC), Azerbaijan American Council (AAC) and Azerbaijan Society of America (ASA) welcome the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit's invalidation of a law designed to provide special treatment for California Armenians, in Movsesian v. Victoria Versicherung, et al. on February 23, 2012.
The Court decided 11-0 that the so-called Poochigian Law was invalid because it unconstitutionally interfered with U.S. foreign policy not to prejudice Turkey with an unproven allegation of genocide. Click here to read the opinion of the Court.
