Judge Blocks Release of UC Davis Pepper Spray Report

OAKLAND, Calif. — On March 6, a judge temporarily halted the release of a report on the controversial pepper spraying of protestors at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis), which took place on Nov. 18.

A lawyer for the union representing UC Davis’ campus police won a temporary restraining order because the report would name officers and could contain potentially damaging information about them, The Sacramento Bee reports. Under state law, releasing such information is prohibited.

Officer John Pike, shown spraying protestors in footage of the incident, has had to change his phone number and leave home when his address went public, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The union cited Pike’s predicament in its request for a restraining order.

UC officials, however, said they would fight to have the full report released.
