Oregon’s Domestic Partners Law Postponed…for Now…

JUDGE GRANTS TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER IN PORTLAND FEDERAL COURT ROOM


The Alliance Defense Fund (www.telladf.org) argued the case in Portland’s Federal Court Building
ADF attorneys filed a lawsuit on behalf of several Oregonians after the Secretary of State and clerks’ offices in 12 different counties invalidated their petition signatures for a referendum that would allow voters to decide the “civil unions” issue (www.telladf.org/news/story.aspx?cid=4317). Many of the citizens sought, in person, to have their signatures revalidated since no legitimate reason existed to refuse to recognize them.

THE FOLLOWING IS FROM RESTORE AMERICA:

December 28, 2007

Greetings!

Today Was A Victory!

U.S. District Judge Michael Mossman, after hearing oral arguments by Alliance Defense Fund attorney Austin Nimocks, and state attorneys, granted the requested temporary restraining order preventing HB 2007 from becoming law on January 1, 2008.

The factual showing to determine if HB 2007 is submitted to a vote of the people will take place on Friday, February 1. The merits of the case will be heard then.

By all accounts Judge Mossman has a high regard for the law and will rule fairly.

We shall see.

Earlier, at a 10AM hearing to consider that State of Oregon’s request to quash subpoenas of defendant County Clerks, the State obtained only temporary restraints.

The Court Room was full and we were well represented.

Thanks for your continued prayers, faith in our efforts, and support.
