California Public Records Act - Orders and Appeals

Orders and Appeals

To facilitate prompt public access to public records, court orders either directing disclosure of public records or supporting an agency's decision of nondisclosure are immediately reviewable by an appellate court by way of an emergency petition seeking issuance of an extraordinary writ. In 1991, the California Supreme Court made clear that under this writ procedure, trial court orders are reviewable on their merits. Thus, when a trial court order under the CPRA is reviewed by an appellate court, the independent review standard is employed for legal issues and factual findings made by the trial court will be upheld if they are based on substantial evidence.

Famous quotes containing the words orders and, appeals and/or orders:

    Selflessness is like waiting in a hospital
    In a badly-fitting suit on a cold wet morning.
    Selfishness is like listening to good jazz
    With drinks for further orders and a huge fire.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    If tragedy elicits our compassion, comedy appeals to our self-interest. The former confronts life’s failures with noble fortitude, the latter seeks to circumvent them with shrewd nonchalance. The one leaves us momentarily in a mood of resignation, the other in a condition of euphoria.
    Harry Levin (b. 1912)

    Really, if the lower orders don’t set us a good example, what on earth is the use of them? They seem, as a class, to have absolutely no sense of moral responsibility.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
