Doe v. Reed, 11-35854

Plaintiffs' suit to enjoin the Secretary of State and Public Records Officer of the State of Washington from releasing the names of people who signed petitions supporting a Washington referendum to overturn State Senate Bill 5688, which expands the rights and responsibilities of state-registered domestic partners, is dismissed as moot where the plaintiffs cannot be granted effective relief because the petitions are already widely available on the internet.
