McManis Faulkner Case Covered in Law360 Article

Partners Matt Schechter and Christine Peek were mentioned in the article  “Calif. High Court to Mull Privacy of Officials’ Unofficial Emails,” which was published by Law360 on June 27, 2014. The attorneys represent Ted Smith, a private citizen, who sought records related to downtown San Jose redevelopment. The case now before the California Supreme Court involves whether the private communications, which are not stored on city servers nor directly accessible by the city, still qualify as "public records" under the California Public Records Act — and whether they can be accessed by a citizen like Smith.
