- Judge(s)/Court Below: En Banc & Walters, J for the Court
Rasmussen sought review of the ballot title for Initiative Petition 12 (2014). The issue before the Court was whether the Attorney General's certified ballot title complied with the "simple and understandable statement of not more than 25 words" rule of ORS 250.035(2)(b). The Court pointed to inaccuracies in describing the subject matter of Initiative Petition 12 (2014) as certified by the Attorney General and concluded that the certified caption does not meet the standards set out in ORS 250.035(b)(2). The Court referred the ballot caption back to the Attorney General for modification.
