Issues

Peace officers' professional organization brought action against the City of Portola, seeking an injunction requiring it to comply with a California statute requiring a complainant to sign an advisory informing them that filing a knowingly false complaint alleging misconduct by a peace officer may result in criminal prosecution. The Superior Court entered judgment in the organization's favor and ordered an injunction against the City. The City appeals.

The case is pending before the Seventh Appellate District of California and raises the following issues:

  1. Does the City have standing to appeal or to raise its constitutional arguments?
  2. Does Penal Code section 148.6, subdivision (a), particularly subdivision (a)(2), constitute improper viewpoint discrimination in violation of the First Amendment?
  3. Does Penal Code section 148.6, subdivision (a), particularly subdivision (a)(2), impose an impermissible burden on the ability to file, or on the City to accept, police misconduct complaints?
  4. Is it error to compel the City to comply with a statute that has been ruled unconstitutional by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit?
