SALINE v. THE SUPERIOR COURT OF ORANGE COUNTY (COMMONWEALTH ENERGY CORP.), G029761

An order limiting a corporate director's access to corporate documents was unsupported by evidence that he intended to use the documents to commit a tort against the corporation; a gag order on the contents of the records is an unlawful prior restraint on speech.
