Five of the nine justices of the Washington Supreme Court agreed on the ruling, but in his crucial fifth vote Justice Dolliver said that he reached his conclusion based on entirely distinct reasoning from the other four justices with whose decision he concurred.
A 2007 decision of Rob McKenna, the Washington Attorney General, on the subject of whethers circulators can collect signatures on private property when the property owner doesn't want them to, says, "We do know, based on Alderwood, that initiative or referendum supporters must be permitted to circulate petitions at large regional shopping malls, subject to reasonable time, place and manner restrictions."
