From the Seattle Times:

“U.S. District Judge Benjamin H. Settle in Tacoma will hear oral arguments at 2:30 p.m. today on the request by Protect Washington Families for a temporary restraining order to stop the Secretary of State's Office and the Public Records Officer from making the names public.”

This morning, David Ammons, spokesman for the secretary of state, said his office will not contest today's request for a temporary restraining order but would argue at a later hearing to uphold disclosure laws.

From the Spokane Spokesman Review:

State officials won’t resist a temporary restraining order that would block public release of petition signatures for a gay-partnership referendum.”
