Postal Sidewalk Petitioners ask for Reconsideration in U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit

On August 27, the groups and individuals who challenged the ban on obtaining signatures on post office interior sidewalks asked the U.S. Court of Appeals to re-hear their case. The D.C. Circuit had upheld the ban on July 13. The case is Initiative & Referendum Institute v U.S. Postal Service. The existing postal regulations permit voter registration card tables on such sidewalks. Also the existing regulations permit petitioners to stand on interior postal sidewalks and ask for signatures, but if the passer-by wants to sign, then the act of signing must be off the sidewalk.

Here is the request for rehearing. The text is 15 pages. It’s an interesting brief.
