Supreme Court Hears Arguments on Privacy

Supreme Court justices voiced skepticism, and even some outrage over arguments that people who signed a petition for a Washington state ballot measure against gay rights should be able to keep their names private out of a general fear of harassment.

Speaking to the lawyer challenging a state open-records law, Justice Antonin Scalia said, “The people of Washington evidently think that this is not too much of an imposition upon people’s courage — to stand up and sign something and be willing to stand behind it.”

Scalia was most vigorous in protesting arguments that Washington residents who signed a petition for a referendum against gay legal rights had a right to privacy in their political speech.
