9th Circuit rejects en banc review of ruling that First Amendment protects internal campaign communications of Prop. 8 proponents from discovery

Perry v. Hollingsworth, No. 09-17241, 12/30/09 order by 9th Circuit Court declining en banc review of panel ruling on Judge Walker's discovery orders

On December 11th, a 9th Circuit panel ruled that Prop. 8 proponents could withhold their internal campaign communications from discovery in the Perry case. A 9th Circuit judge called for a vote on whether the ruling should be reviewed en banc. Yesterday the Court denied the call for an en banc rehearing. Bob Egelko of the SF Chronicle reports on this development here.
