Federal District Court Enjoins California Requirement that Presidential Primary Candidates Release Tax Returns, Finding Measure Likely Unconstitutional and Preempted by Federal Law

You can find the court’s rather cursory discussion of the issues in this opinion (via BAN). I expect this will now go on appeal to the Ninth Circuit, which could well reverse, and to the Supreme Court, which I expect would be likely to agree with the district court. (This measure is clearly aimed at Trump, though it applies to all candidates.)
