    Spitzer and the county are playing liars poker with the tax payers money…he wins even if he loses…after all, DELAY is the greatest defense employed by government against the people they seldom represent…next up, Spitzer begins a perpetual game of KICK The CAN…

    The BOS knew they were violating the CPRA and CoCo knew it but yet they continue to defend. Why? They do not respect the law and it’s not their money.

    It’s in the OC Culture. The leadership sets the tone. This is why the Agencies withhold, alter and destroy public records on a regular basis.

    Cheers on the ruling Norberto. IMHO if Todd is the one who started this thing he should be liable for the legal fees to be paid out of his 1 million dollar central committee fund.

    It’s unconscionable that Spitzer would waste a sizable amount of our public funds to fight established law that protects the basic First Amendment rights of a news reporter. A first year law student should understand the sanctity of those basic rights. Besides, this matter is of great ‘public interest’ which magnifies it’s importance. Obviously, it was an attempt to throw up obstacles and barriers to thwart the public’s right to know. An exercise in #&$-covering. Seriously, do we want a guy like this running the District Attorney’s office? Wake up, folks.

      Yeah, but they all went along with it, didn’t they? An why not? A free chance to test the anti-free speech waters. They never would have spent a dime of their own dough.

    It’s not their money.
