Name: Warrick v. Superior Court
Case #: B160462
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 2 DCA
Division: 2
Opinion Date: 04/18/2003
Subsequent History: Rev. granted 6/25/03: S115738

Petitioner challenged the denial of his motion to discover confidential information from police personnel files regarding three officers involved in his arrest for possession for sale of cocaine. Petitioner’s declaration alleged that the officers falsely stated that they had observed him discard 42 rocks of cocaine. The trial court denied the motion based on insufficient showing of cause. The appellate court here affirmed the denial. Petitioner’s scenario was sufficiently specific, but it was not plausible.
