David P. Mastagni will join Senator Nancy Skinner (SB 1421's author), David Synder from the First Amendment Coalition and reporter Thomas Peele at a forum to discuss the policies, the legal battles and the perspectives raised by S.B. 1421.
David P. Mastagni is the founder and managing partner of Mastagni Holstedt, APC, where he practices primarily in the areas of civil litigation and labor law. Mastagni labor and employment attorneys located throughout California provide representation in all disciplinary matters, from the administrative investigation through any administrative appeal, including matters involving suspension, demotion, or dismissal. His son, David E. Mastagni represented PORAC in negotiations with Senator Skinner over S.B. 1421 and filed an extraordinary writ of mandate with the California Supreme Court on behalf of Crime Victims United and the Sacramento Police Officers Association seeking clarification of third party and officer privacy rights under S.B. 1421. Although the court declined to review the issues raised, it did request supplemental briefing on the impacts of S.B. 1421 on another matter before the Court involving Brady tips. The Mastagni and Wilkinson firms subsequently filed an Amicus Curiae brief brief with the Court on behalf of PORAC. The Supreme Court will likely soon determine whether S.B. 1421 has retroactive application in the still pending Brady tip appeal.
The forum hosted by Cal Matters and moderated by Laurel Rosenhall will be held:
