Judge Denies Injunctive Relief in California Disclosure of Contributors Case

On January 29, U.S. District Court Judge Morrison England refused to issue an injunction against a California law that requires disclosure of the names and addresses of small donors to initiative campaigns. ProtectMarriage.com v Bowen, no. 2:09-cv-58, e.d. The case had been filed by donors to California’s Proposition 8, the ballot measure last year to eliminate same-sex marriage. A quick appeal is likely; the law requires the disclosure by February 2. Thanks to Rick Hasen for this news.
