Personal appearances are required. Each side shall be limited to twenty (20) minutes, and counsel should be prepared to discuss, inter alia: (1) whether permitting the state to require the requested donor information directly from Plaintiff would frustrate the full purposes and objectives of Congress in enacting 26 U.S.C. § 6104; (2) whether Plaintiff is required to make the prima facie showing set forth in Brock v. Local 375, Plumbers Int’l Union of Am., AFL-CIO, 860 F.2d 346, 350 (9th Cir. 1988), to succeed on its Freedom of Association claim; and (3) how Plaintiff would suffer irreparable harm and how the equities would balance if the Court were to find that the Attorney General’s request is preempted by federal law rather than unconstitutional under the first amendment.
