#15-133 American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Southern California v. Superior Court, S227106.  (B259392; 236 Cal.App 4th 673; Los Angeles County Superior Court; BS143004.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal denied a petition for writ of mandate. This case presents the following issue: Does information collected by police using “automated license plate readers” — high-speed cameras that automatically scan and record the license plate numbers and time, date and location of every passing vehicle without suspicion of criminal activity — constitute law enforcement “records of . . . investigations” that are permanently exempt from disclosure under the Public Records Act in accordance with Government Code section 6254,subdivision (f)?
