D.C. Circuit Won't Grant a Rehearing in Postal Sidewalks Petitioning Case

On September 10, the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, refused to grant a rehearing in Initiative & Referendum Institute v U.S. Postal Service. This is the case over whether individuals may sign petitions on interior postal sidewalks. Postal regulations allow circulators to stand on such sidewalks, but if the potential signer wishes to sign, the circulator and potential signer must then leave the sidewalk and go somewhere else. It is possible the case will be put before the U.S. Supreme Court.
