Public Record Rights Hampered in Orange Co.

July 9, 2013

"The court recognized the substantial risks in tolerating an interpretation of the CPRA [California Public Records Act] that exempts public records from disclosure simply because they were stored or formatted in a particular medium or manner," Rumold said. "The court also recognized the importance of California's Constitution in resolving doubts about whether particular records should be withheld or disclosed."

The "decision makes clear" that "doubts should be resolved in favor of disclosure," Rumold added.
