My question involves court procedures for the state of: California, but in Federal Court
I am trying to get more information on an officer and if he has a past of misconduct. In a video I just watched on Youtube, an officer acted badly and the news crew says through their research they found no prior disciplinary action against the officer, how do I find out too?
That is the news video.
I requested it through discovery and only got back that it is a violation of their privacy rights, but I always thought a public employee's record or complaints filed by citizens would be a matter of public record. Any thoughts?
