Records of litigation

Records concerning agency litigation are exempt, but only until the claim is resolved or settled. The complaint, claim, or records filed in court, records that pre-date the suit (e.g., reports about projects that eventually end in litigation), and settlement records are public. (§§ 6254(b), 6254.25); Register Div. of Freedom Newspapers, Inc. v. Orange County, 158 Cal. App. 3d 893 (1984)) (County of Los Angeles v. Superior Court 82 Cal App. 4th 819 (2000)).
