A trial court's direction to prepare an index is preliminary to any order directing disclosure by a public official or supporting the decision of the public official refusing disclosure. This act does not trigger the filing period for a party to seek appellate review, but it is subject to interlocutory review, and the writ petition should be filed within 60 days. A trial court erred in directing the preparation of an index of documents that itself would reveal the identities of third parties involved in confidential communications during the deliberative process of drafting legislation. The court also erred in requiring the release of attorney work product produced by the legislative counsel.
