Attorney General Faces Lawsuit Over Release of TISCA Lists

On December 19, 2016, a petition seeking a writ of mandate was filed against the California Attorney General’s Office in San Diego County Superior Court under the California Public Records Act to compel the release of the list of retail sellers and manufacturers required to disclose efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking pursuant to Civil Code § 1714.43.

The petition was filed by Christopher Bayer, an international development practitioner and academic who serves as a Principal Investigator at Development International, a not-for-profit organization focused on the impact of legal instruments that regulate the industries in sectors tainted with conflict, the worst forms of child labor, or modern-day slavery.

Dr. Bayer is represented by attorney Robert Teel.  The case remains pending. See Bayer v. Office of the Attorney General, S.D.S.C (Central District), Case No. 37-2016-00044481-CU-WM-CTL.
