LinkedIn Discussion Group: CPRA Requirements Regarding Private Electronic Devices

The California Supreme Court recently held that local agency employee and official emails or text messages about local agency business that are sent, stored, or received in a personal account or on a private electronic device are not exempt from disclosure under the California Public Records Act (CPRA). The Court also suggested that local agencies develop their own internal policies to address the disclosure requirements of the CPRA in light of privacy concerns. Members can visit the Authority’s LinkedIn discussion group page to share their thoughts about crafting internal policies to address the CPRA disclosure requirements.
