Legal Challenge to Prop 35, New Sex Trafficking Law

In Awareness, Human Trafficking on November 20, 2012 at 3:11 pm

A day after California voters approved Proposition 35, a federal judge Wednesday temporarily blocked the new law’s requirement that the state’s 73,000 registered sex offenders must immediately give police a list of their online screen names and Internet service providers.

U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson issued the temporary restraining order in San Francisco in a federal civil rights lawsuit filed Wednesday morning by two registered offenders and a nonprofit group.

The temporary order will remain in effect until a Nov. 20 hearing on whether Henderson should grant a longer-term preliminary injunction against the disclosure requirement.
