Santa Rosa paper sues to get pension data

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported Friday that it is suing the Sonoma County Employees’ Retirement Association in an effort to force the disclosure of public pension records after the agency rejected numerous public records requests.

The association says a state law governing county-run pension systems requires that such information not be disclosed. But the California Supreme Court and state Attorney General have in the past overruled similar claims about the confidentiality of government salaries.
