CORONADO POLICE OFFICERS ASS'N v. CARROLL, D039198

A Public Defender's database is not a public record within the meaning of the California Public Records Act, Government Code section 6250 et seq., and even if it is, it would be exempt from disclosure under the Act's "catch-all" exemption (sec. 6255) because the public interest in nondisclosure clearly outweighs the public interest in disclosure.
