#18-173 National Lawyers Guild v. City of Hayward, S252445. (A149328; 27 Cal.App.5th 937, mod, 28 Cal.App.5th 372e; Alameda County Superior Court; RG15785743.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal reversed the judgment in a action for writ of administrative mandate. This case presents the following issue: Does the California Public Records Act permit a public agency to shift the cost of redacting exempt information from electronic records to the party making the request for the records although the cost of redaction cannot be required for paper records?
