EDITORIAL: Judge must order DA to release records

Government officials do not have the discretion to decide which documents are public records and which ones are confidential. They cannot reject a request for public records based on what they think the documents might be used for. They cannot set a cap on the number of records requests a party can submit. They do not have the latitude to reject some records requests because they complied with others. And they certainly can’t tell news organizations whether to report on government documents or when they must stop reporting on those public records.
