Professor Joo Quoted in San Francisco Chronicle

Professor Thomas Joo is quoted in a San Francisco Chronicle article regarding a proposal by two San Francisco supervisors that would bar the city from contracting with companies that are seeking to work on President Trump’s proposed wall across the Mexican border.

“It is pretty harsh because a company is put in a bind, because if they were thinking about bidding on two jobs — to build the wall or work for San Francisco — they couldn’t do both,” said Joo. He warned that the legislation could harm San Francisco, because “fewer bids means less competition,” which could mean the prices of contracts increase.

Joo, Martin Luther King, Jr. Professor at UC Davis School of Law, specializes in the areas of corporate governance and race and the law.
