Debra Bowen, et al., Defendants. Case No. 2:09-CV-00058-MCE-DAD DECLARATION OF REDACTED IN SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT Date: TBD Time: TBD. Judge England 1 Dockets.Justia.com John Doe #27 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Declaration of REDACTED in Support of Plaintiffs' Motion for Summary Judgment I, REDACTED , make the following declaration pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1746: 1. I am a resident of the state of Michigan over 18 years of age, and my statements herein are based on personal knowledge. 2. I supported the passage of Proposition 8. 3. In support of the passage of Proposition 8, I donated approximately $XXX to National Organization for Marriage. 4. Although I have supported causes similar to Proposition 8 in the past, my only public support of Proposition 8 was the donation I made to the National Organization for Marriage California - Yes on 8, Sponsored by National Organization for Marriage ("National Organization for Marriage"). The only way I could be publicly identified as supporting Proposition 8 was through the public disclosure of my personal information as a result of my donations to the National Organization for Marriage. 5. When I made my donation, I had no idea that my name would be made public. It had been my intention to remain anonymous. Had I known that my name would be posted online, I probably would not have donated. 6. I am an author of three books under the pseudonym of REDACTED . I regularly check the internet to see what sort of information is being published about me. 7. In December, I performed one of my regular checks of the internet and discovered that my name had been posted on a "BoycottH8ers List" and listed as an intolerant "H8er" for supporting Proposition 8 in California. I support Proposition 8 because I believe that Natural Law is the basis of the U.S. Constitution and all laws. I am not a "H8er." 8. After being listed as a "H8er" on the internet, I sent an email to the Christian Legal Crew, and told them that I wished I would have known that my name would be posted on the internet if I made a donation. A true and correct copy of the text of that email is attached as Exhibit A. 2 John Doe #27 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Declaration of REDACTED in Support of Plaintiffs' Motion for Summary Judgment 9. In the future, I would be much less likely to get involved in a cause similar to Proposition 8 that does not assure my confidentiality. I DECLARE UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY THAT THE FOREGOING IS TRUE AND CORRECT. Executed on: REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED 3 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 CERTIFICATE OF SERVICE I, Scott F.
