Judge: Parts of report on pepper-spraying of student protesters at UC Davis must remain sealed
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) ' A judge says parts of a highly anticipated report on the pepper-spraying of student demonstrators by University of California, Davis police will remain under seal.
The Oakland Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/A4NnP4 ) Alameda County Superior Court Judge Evelio Grillo ruled Friday that University of California officials can release most of their report on the incident.
But sections that police have argued would violate their privacy if released will stay sealed while the officers' arguments are taken into consideration.
University attorneys said they had not decided whether to release a partial version of the report.
The investigation led by a former California Supreme Court judge was spurred by an officer dousing a row of protesters with pepper spray as they sat passively. Video of the incident drew worldwide attention and became a rallying point for the Occupy movement.
