Pepper-spray report can be released without names
OAKLAND, Calif. -- A judge has ruled the University of California can release a report on the pepper-spraying of student demonstrators by UC Davis police but must first remove most officers' names.
Alameda County Superior Court Judge Evelio Grillo ruled Wednesday the report does not contain confidential personnel records and can be released.
But Grillo says he wants the university to redact the names of officers other than Police Chief Annette Spicuzza and Lt. John Pike, who became known after online videos of the incident went viral.
Grillo says the report cannot be released for at least 21 days to give officers a chance to appeal.
The report was produced by a task force created to investigate the Nov. 18 crackdown on Occupy protesters.
