FAP Files Amicus Brief in the California Supreme Court In Support of the Release of ALPR Data from the LAPD and LA Sheriff’s Dept.

On May 4, 2016, FAP filed an amicus curiae brief on behalf of the Northern California Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (Nor. Cal. SPJ) in support of the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California and the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s petition to the Supreme Court requesting that it reverse the Court of Appeal and hold that Automated License Plate Readers (“ALPR”) data are not “[r]ecords of … investigations…” within the meaning of Government Code § 6254(f), and therefore, not exempt from disclosure under the California Public Records Act, § 6250 et seq.
