ACLU v. Superior Court, A131111

In a writ challenge to a judgment of the trial court authorizing the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) to withhold certain categories of information involving the State's lethal injection cocktail, judgment is reversed where: 1) the CDCR may not withhold the names of the pharmaceutical companies and others from which it sought to acquire a prescription drug used by the state in executing condemned inmates; and 2) the CDCR cannot delete information from disclosed documents on the ground it is not responsive to petitioner's Public Records Act request.
