Ass'n for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs v. County of Los Angeles, B197611

In a labor action challenging defendant-county's unilateral revision of its policy manual to prohibit deputies from collectively consulting with legal counsel or labor representatives in deputy-involved shooting investigations, denial of a preliminary injunction is affirmed where: 1) plaintiff was not likely to prevail on the merits under the Public Safety Officer Procedural Bill of Rights Act, the Meyers-Milias-Brown Act, or its constitutional claims; 2) plaintiff's evidence of harm did not predominate; 3) the policy did not violate deputies' constitutional rights; and 4) there was no evidence to support plaintiff's claims of interference with its members' right to counsel.
