Prop 8’s Supporters Get to Keep Their Bigot Documents Hidden

Whether you call it a triumph for ProtectMarriage.com, a triumph for the ACLU, or a triumph for free speech, the Ninth U.S. Circuit of Appeals’s unanimous decision to let Prop 8 supporters keep their internal memos private is a bitchslap to Perry v. Schwarzenegger‘s Judge Vaughn Walker, who initially demanded ProtectMarriage’s Charles Cooper turn everything over to the competition. This means Perry‘s plaintiffs, who are looking to have Prop 8 overturned on constitutional grounds, won’t have a sneak peek inside their opponents’ strategy — making it more difficult to prove they pushed for Prop 8’s passage as a means of discrimination.
