Cal. Public Records etc. v. County of Stanislaus, 070601

In an action for writ of mandate to compel the County of Stanislaus to reduce the fees it charges for copies of official records, alleging the fees of $3 for the first page and $2 for each subsequent page exceeded County's cost of providing the service and, therefore, violated Government Code section 27366, which states that copying fees 'shall be set by the board of supervisors in an amount necessary to recover the direct and indirect costs of providing the product or service,' the trial court's denial of the writ is reversed where, in light of the evidence on record, the County’s board of supervisors abused its discretion when it set the copying fees.
