General counsel statement on release of Reynoso report
University of California General Counsel Charles Robinson on March 29 made the following statement about timing of the public release of the task force report on the events of Nov. 18, 2011, at UC Davis:
“In ruling almost entirely in favor of UC arguments for full public disclosure of reports from the UC Davis task force, Alameda County Superior Court Judge Evelio Grillo imposed a stay until April 20 to allow campus police union attorneys time to prepare an appeal if they decide to do so.
“I have been informed that, as a result, the task force chaired by former California Supreme Court Associate Justice Cruz Reynoso has decided to postpone public release of the report beyond the first week of April.
“Justice Reynoso, in a March 20 letter to UC President Mark G. Yudof, had proposed releasing the full task force report the first week of April, subject to further legal action. He emphasized the importance of providing a thorough account of the events of Nov. 18, 2011, along with the task force’s recommendations and the accompanying report by the Kroll consulting group. I understand that Justice Reynoso will confer with task force members to reschedule public release of the report.”DSS
