It seems to me that establishing principals for the conduct of business is NOT micromanaging daily operations. I wonder if the courts would rule the same way on a proposal preventing a corporation from supporting neo-Nazi groups. I suspect this judge knew his ruling before he heard any evidence.

Such a ruling from a judge in Texas is not unexpected. Texas and the rest of the south are not noted for their logic nor their track record on equal rights.
