Claremont Police Officers Association v. City of Claremont

California Supreme Court
39 Cal. 4th 623, 47 Cal. Rptr. 3d 69, 139 P.3d 532 (2006)

  • Written by Rose VanHofwegen, JD

Facts

The City of Claremont, California (the city) (defendant) adopted a study requiring police officers to complete racial-profiling forms during vehicle stops. The form took about two minutes to complete, four to six times per shift. The Claremont Police Officers Association (association) (plaintiff) requested that the city meet and confer with the association regarding the study before implementation, claiming it fell within subjects that public employers must discuss with employee organizations under California’s Meyers-Milias-Brown Act (MMBA). The city disagreed and implemented the study. The association petitioned to compel the city not to implement the study without meeting and conferring. The trial court denied the petition, finding the form would minimally impact officers’ workload. The appellate court reversed, reasoning that how the city implemented the study and its effects could substantially affect police officers’ working conditions, particularly if the city disciplined officers for racial profiling. The California Supreme Court granted review.
