Union seeks to block Calif. pepper spray report
Union seeks to block release of report on pepper-spraying of Calif. student protesters
By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' A union representing University of California police officers is seeking a court order to block the release of a report on the pepper-spraying of student demonstrators by police officers during an Occupy protest at UC Davis last fall.

The task force investigating the Nov. 19 incident was scheduled to release its findings and recommendations Tuesday. But it decided to delay the move Monday after learning the officers' union plans to seek a court order to halt the report's public disclosure.

Union attorney John Bakhit says officers involved don't want their names or any confidential information they told investigators to be published in the report.



Bakhit plans to request a temporary restraining order in Alameda County Superior Court on Tuesday.

The task force was created to investigate the encounter, when police officers doused pepper spray on sitting protesters who had set up an Occupy encampment.
