Naturist Action Comm. v. California State Dep't of Parks and Rec., No. G040929

Trial court's issuance of writ of mandate holding that the internal policy memorandum regarding the enforcement of California Code of Regulations title 14, sec. 43 prohibiting nudity in California state parks constitutes a regulation is reversed, where the memorandum in question was adopted without substantially complying with the requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act and is thus an unenforceable underground regulation.
