Schools Over Stadiums v. Thompson

Docket number

Held that a petition seeking to place a referendum on the ballot to strike sections of a bill authorizing the financing and construction of a Major League Baseball stadium in the county violated the constitution’s full-text requirement because it did not include the entirety of the bill’s language. Accordingly, the Secretary of State was prevented from placing the petition on the general election ballot.
