ADF: Supreme Court to hear Wash. state R-71 signature case

by D. Bennett

The Alliance Defense Fund notes (referencing a Bloomberg story) that the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case involving R-71, the Washington state referendum which essentially upheld an “everything but marriage” approach to homosexual unions.

The case in question asks whether the Constitution bars the release of the signatories of a ballot referendum. Opponents of same-sex marriage, who gathered enough signatures to get R-71 on the ballot but failed to pass the referendum, argue that the release of names of signatories would open those people up to “harassment and intimidation.”
