The Center for Competitive Politics (CCP), America’s largest nonprofit working to promote and defend First Amendment rights to free political speech, assembly, and petition, released the following statement concerning the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision not to review the ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Center for Competitive Politics v. Harris:
“We are very disappointed that the Supreme Court decided not to review the 9th Circuit’s decision. The case is not over and we will study our legal options before making our next move,” said CCP President David Keating. “It is possible, for example, that the Court did not want to review the denial of a preliminary injunction and will decide to hear the case after the lower courts have ruled on the merits of the case.
“We call on Attorney General Kamala Harris to end this failed policy. Last week, it was revealed that over 1,400 supposedly confidential forms listing donors appeared on the state’s website.
