Abstract The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit granted the Plaintiffs a preliminary injunction blocking the enforcement of provisions of Proposition 35, or the CASE Act, which requires anyone who is a registered sex offender to to turn over a list of all their Internet identifiers and service providers to law enforcement. The Court agreed with the lower court that registered sex offenders who have completed their terms of probation and parole should have their First Amendment rights protected. It affirmed the district court’s judgement accordingly, finding that the statute was overly broad and violated the plaintiffs’ First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and association. In early 2015 the state of California decided not to appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court.
