OLYMPIA, Washington: Referendum 71 opponents announced late last week that they want the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the signature privacy case.[1] Earlier last week the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an order to reverse the decision made by U.S. District Judge Ben Settle. Settle ruled that releasing the names of Referendum 71 petition signers could violate their First Amendment rights.[2]
