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.
