League of Cal. Cities v. Super. Ct.(San Diegans for Open Government), D067969

In a writ petition filed by a nonparty to the action arguing it was a real party in interest that would be irreparably damaged by the trial court's order to disclose records allegedly protected from disclosure by the attorney-client privilege and attorney work product doctrine, the petition is granted where: 1) the term "a party" as used in the California Public Records Act, Gov. Code section 6250 et seq., is not limited to an actual party to the action; and 2) the trial court erred by not conducting an in camera review of these documents as requested by the party asserting the documents were exempt from disclosure.
