On appeal, the Supreme Court of California found that since the requested records contained the cop's name and other personal information, they were exempt from disclosure under Cal. Const. art. II § 3 subd. (b)(3). On that basis, the appellate court was reversed and the trial court's dismissal of the case was reinstated. See: Copely Press, Inc. v. Superior Court of San Diego County, 39 Cal.4th 1272 (2006).
