On appeal: the Court of Appeal of California, 1st Appellate District, Division 2, found that Cal. Evid. Code § 1040 and Cal. Gov't. Code § 6254(f) both provided privileges under which the DOC could refuse to disclose the files at issue. Therefore, the Court issued a peremptory writ prohibiting the trial court from requiring the DOC to disclose them. See: Procunier v. Superior Court of Monterey County, 35 Cal.App. 3d 207; 110 Cal.Rptr. 529 (1973).
