PATRICK NESBITT ET AL VS MONTECITO WATER DISTRICT

Public Records Act Plaintiff’s eighth cause of action is for failure to comply with the California Public Records Act. MWD argues that the request is a “rambling, argumentative diatribe that seeks narrative responses from the District.” (Motion, at p. 17.) Based on this characterization, MWD argues that it is not obligated to respond to the request at all and therefore the cause of action has no merit.

JONATHAN MCKEE VS CITY OF SANTA BARBARA POLICE DEPARTMENT

The underlying right and legal theory plaintiff seeks to enforce is his right as a member of the public to access documents pursuant to the California Public Records Act (Gov. Code, § 6250 et seq.). The petition appears as one cause of action. City nevertheless demurs to plaintiff’s claim for damages on the grounds that the plaintiff has not complied with the California Tort Claims Act. At most, plaintiff seeks damages as a remedy for the alleged violation of the California Public Records Act.

DENVER FLOYD VS. KMART CORPORATION

Finally, defendant's contention that the police report is protected from civil discovery pursuant to the California Public Records Act is also without merit. As addressed in the plaintiff's opposition, the CPRA does not constitute a bar to civil discovery. Further, exemption of disclosure under the CPRA is for the public custodian to assert in response to a public record request.

GARCIA VS COUNTY OF SANTA BARBARA

To exclude all documents provided to Garcia through her request under California Public Records Act. (I find no opposition filed.) GRANTED. #7. To exclude all expert testimony. (I find no opposition filed.) DEFERRED. Generally this issue should be addressed at the time the opposition refuses to produce their expert for deposition so I can rule on it prior to the last minute. But with that said it is very likely that the Court will preclude expert testimony from Garcia based upon what is in the paperwork.
