Schaffer v. Superior Court, B217743

Defendant's request for extraordinary relief to set aside an order of the superior court denying his motion to compel the People to provide copies of discovery under Penal Code section 1054.1 free of charge, is denied as section 1054.1 imposes no such duty on the prosecution as the People comply with section 1054.1 by affording a defendant an opportunity to examine, inspect, or copy the discoverable items, and a non-indigent defendant may receive at his or her expense copies of discovery made available by the People.
