CalWatchdog Morning Read – July 8

Good morning! It’s Friday — we made it.

A Bay Area judge recently ruled[1] against the city of Hayward and its police department for charging exorbitant fees for public records.

The case stemmed from the National Lawyers Guild’s request for footage from officers’ body cameras as they helped patrol a contentious overnight Black Live Matters protest [2]in Berkeley on Dec. 6-7, 2014 — a request police complied with after the guild paid $3,247.

Police justified the high cost by saying the footage had to be carefully examined and redacted.
