The first paragraph in the previous story should have read:
Jerry Brown's Department of Justice is sponsoring a bill, opposed by
Californians Aware and the California Newspaper Publishers Association
(CNPA), to allow courts to order "abusive" or "harassing" requestors to
stop requesting using the California Public Records Act. AB 520,
by Assembly Member Wilmer Amina Carter (D-Rialto), is set to be first
heard in the Assembly Judiciary Committee (member contact data here) on April 27.
(Not June 28). We regret the error.
