Case Summary

NOTE: This case is being tracked in close to real time by the Stanford/MIT Healthy Elections Project. So for information, see their tracker.

According to their summary as of 09/01/2020,

Proponents of ballot initiative seek a suspension or extension of the usual 180-day deadline for collecting petition signatures for such an initiative. They allege that COVID restrictions have impeded their ability to collect signatures, and that a failure to relax the deadline would, among other things, constitute a violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendments. Plaintiffs sought a peremptory writ of mandamus extending the 180 day deadline until all counties had been authorized to move to stage 3 of the re-opening guidelines.
