Brown Challenges Effort to Depose Schwarzenegger In Prison Crowding Case

Friday, August 15, 2008
Contact: (415) 703-5837

LOS ANGELES—In opposing a federal court ruling in the prison crowding case, California Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. today issued the following statement:

“Inmates’ counsel have gone too far. They are attacking the state with a blizzard of paper and an outrageous demand to depose the Governor. This effort creates a public circus and does nothing to fix our prisons. Moreover, they made no showing that the Governor has relevant information concerning the issues at stake.”

Today, Brown filed a request for reconsideration of the magistrate judge’s ruling which would require the Governor, his Chief of Staff and his Senior Deputy Cabinet Secretary to submit to a deposition.

Brown’s motion for reconsideration is attached. The two cases before a three-judge panel are: Coleman v. Schwarzenegger and Plata v. Schwarzenegger.
