Prop. 8 Opponents Told|to Deliver Documents

     SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – A federal judge ordered groups that campaigned against California’s Proposition 8, the same-sex marriage ban, to deliver documents that were withheld from the other side.

     In upholding a previous ruling by Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero, U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker said gay marriage ban opponents Equality California and the American Civil Liberties Union must surrender the campaign materials, which include email exchanges between the groups.
     Judge Walker disagreed with the groups’ assertion that the materials were protected by the First Amendment. He wrote, “The standard does not protect campaign communications that are not private and internal.”
