DODD V. AFFORDABLE COMMUNITY LIVING CORPORATION

Based on the Complaint, a writ of mandate compelling Defendant to comply with the California Public Records Act (CPRA) requires a finding that Defendant is subject to the CPRA. Thus, there is overlap between the first (Writ of Mandate) and second (Declaratory Relief) causes of action. The Declaratory Relief cause of action, however, alleges an actual controversy regarding whether Defendant is subject to the CPRA. The Prayer for Relief requests a “. . . declaration that ACL is subject to the CPRA . . . .”

While the court does not doubt that the three timekeepers spent all the time they say they spent on this case, spending the time does not make the spent time recoverable.
