Judge Wettick denies CPRB motion to gain access to G-20 documents

September 23rd, 2010

“The Motion of the Pittsburgh Citizen Police Review Board to compel production of 309 pages of un-redacted police reports is the subject of this Opinion and Order of Court. […] At the direction of the Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh, counsel for the City took the position that the City shall not honor these subpoenas because the Police Review Board exceeded its authority in issuing subpoenas for an investigation initiated by the Board. It was the position of the Mayor that the role of the Police Review Board is limited to investigating verified complaints of police misconduct. […] On this 23rd day of September, 2010, it is hereby ORDERED that the request of the Pittsburgh Citizen Police Review Board that I compel the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police to furnish intelligence, investigative, and treatment information protected by §9106 is denied.”
