COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — A judge in Orange County has refused to hold Costa Mesa's mayor pro tem in contempt of court for revealing confidential information that someone placed a tracking device on his truck during the 2012 election season.

The Los Angeles Times reports Judge David Hoffer denied a contempt motion by the Costa Mesa Police Officers' Association. Mayor Pro Tem Steve Mensinger and Mayor Jim Righeimer have sued the police association, claiming they were harassed and intimidated so the organization could have leverage in contract negotiations.

The association asserts Mensinger and his lawyers violated a court order that sealed results of two search warrants served in an investigation involving the police association. Some of the information included the tracking device placed on Mensinger's truck.
