A group challenging California’s transgender bathroom law won a procedural victory in court on Friday, coming one step closer to putting the issue of restroom and locker room access to a popular vote.

A Sacramento Superior Court judge granted a motion to compel 55 state counties to produce documents pertaining to signatures collected for a ballot initiative. The counties had previously resisted handing over the documents.

The legal dispute stems from a 2013 effort by Privacy For All Students, which collected more than 620,000 signatures to put the state’s new transgender bathroom law to a referendum, but was deemed to be 17,276 signatures short after more than 100,000 were invalidated.

In the 90 days that followed passage of the law, Privacy For All Students (PFAS) collected more than 620,000 signatures of registered California voters to qualify a referendum to overturn the new law. But elections officials disqualified more than 20 percent of the signatures, leaving the referendum effort more than 17,000 signatures short of the requirement to qualify for the ballot.
