Due to requests from journalists and advocates, I have published a preliminary account of a lawsuit filed by the UC Berkeley Environmental Law Clinic and the First Amendment Project on my behalf.

We sued the California Department of Public Health for a cell phone safety guidance document under the California Public Records Act. The document was originally prepared in 2010 and has been updated several times but never released to the public.

The judge’s tentative ruling on the case is currently available. Details about the case are available at
