Kennedy: Hold those names

Latest in the legal battle over the names of people who signed Referendum 71 petitions: U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy today blocked the release of the names which the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals unblocked last week.

Kennedy got a request from the group supporting the petition drive, and said the order will stay in place until he's had a chance to review the appeal.

His decision also will stay any release of other initiative petitions, which are being fought over in state courts.

Anyone want to bet that this isn't settled either way until after the Nov. 3 election?
