ACLU SoCal v San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department is a lawsuit against the Sheriff's Department requiring it hand over documents spelling out its policies and practices for using Tasers in the wake of several deaths resulting from shocking people multiple times with the electronic weapons.

The sheriff’s office had refused to turn over records that could be used to determine what changes the department had made in its policies on using Tasers and whether those changes have been effective.
