Dissatisfied with board members from an Orange County School District, a group of concerned citizens launched a recall ballot initiative, gathered 177,947 signatures and submitted them to the Registrar of Voters. After certifying the petitions as insufficient, the registrar allowed the assistant superintendent to view the list and thereby create an “enemies list” of participants. The registrar, superintendent and assistant superintendent violated the Bane Act, which prohibits any person from interfering or attempting to interfere with the exercise of any constitutionally-protected rights.
