California excessive court docket will not hear county enchantment of Ventura official’s firing

The state Supreme Court has refused to review an appeals court’s decision that found Ventura County officials illegally disclosed personnel records of fired investigative commander Tracy Towner.

The high court’s denial Wednesday came four months after the 2nd District Court of Appeal faulted county officials for releasing disciplinary notices and an excerpt from a consultant’s investigation related to Towner’s disputed firing.


The county faced a high bar for state Supreme Court review. Generally, the justices must find they need to act to secure uniformity of decision among the appellate courts or settle an important question of law.
