"Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court, including Justice Scalia, soundly rejected the anti-gay groups' broad arguments that Washington referendum signatures should be kept out of public view. And on Monday, Judge Benjamin Settle threw out NOM's case, citing no credible evidence. Of course, we condemn all incidents of harassment or intimidation of any American -- but one of the "victims" put forth by the groups said he had been "mooned" and flipped off by people in passing cars but never provided any evidence that these incidents had anything to do with the referendum. (Perhaps it was his driving?) The court dissected NOM's claims one by one, dismissing them as speculative."
