California Court of Appeal
CITY OF LOS ANGELES v. SUPERIOR COURT OF ORANGE COUNTY (WILLIAMSON), G031269
A peace officer's payroll records are "personnel records" as defined in Penal Code section 832.8, and are therefore subject to the discovery requirements of Evidence Code sections 1043 and 1045, commonly called a Pitchess motion. There should be an exception to the statutory discovery requirements for marital dissolution proceedings involving the peace officer and his or her spouse.
