The court found, with Justice John Roberts Jr. writing the ruling, that Washington's disclosure law, which only effects disclosing names of those that singed, dose not violate the first amendment. They of course left open as currently is the possibility for groups to seek action to prevent and stop the names from being released in special circumstance if they can sufficiently prove that the release of names would cause harassment and harm to those who singed. Whether that harm come from the government or the general public it self. (this is the option that Protect Marriage Washington is now going after)
It then went on to basically say that it is one of the states utmost responsibilities to conduct state business and election in the most open and public fashion possible. They related the points made in the oral arguments that this public disclosure helps to prevent fraud in the petition process by allowing the public access to be able to over look it them selves. It also allows the public to catch mistakes like names that should not be on the petitions but have wound up on them mistakenly(fraudulently) some how.
