Update on DC First Source Lawsuit

  In May of 2012, ABC Metro Washington, along with two member contractors and four individuals, filed a Complaint (fancy name for a lawsuit) asking the US District Court for the District of Columbia to strike down as unconstitutional the District’s First Source Employment Agreement Act of 1984. In July of 2012, the District responded with a Motion to dismiss our Complaint. This led to a “battle of the briefs”, with the last brief being filed in October of 2012. We heard nothing from the District Court until March of 2013 when Judge Emmet Sullivan asked the parties to weigh-in on whether or not the Privileges and Immunities Clause of the Constitution applies to the District of Columbia.
