San Diego County DA settles public records lawsuit

From San Diego City Beat:

Mel Shapiro just won a legal settlement, but forgive the 84-year-old if he doesn’t look ecstatic about it.

The battle began on March 10, the day San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis formally announced her candidacy for mayor of San Diego. A City Hall watchdog, Shapiro immediately filed a request under the California Public Records Act (CPRA)—a sort of citizen’s subpoena—to find out how effectively Dumanis’ office has investigated corruption and fraud perpetrated by politicians.
