Chapter 3. General Provisions Relating to Privileges - California Evidence Code Section 914

914.  (a) The presiding officer shall determine a claim of privilege
in any proceeding in the same manner as a court determines such a
claim under Article 2 (commencing with Section 400) of Chapter 4 of
Division 3.
   (b) No person may be held in contempt for failure to disclose
information claimed to be privileged unless he has failed to comply
with an order of a court that he disclose such information. This
subdivision does not apply to any governmental agency that has
constitutional contempt power, nor does it apply to hearings and
investigations of the Industrial Accident Commission, nor does it
impliedly repeal Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 9400) of Part 1
of Division 2 of Title 2 of the Government Code. If no other
statutory procedure is applicable, the procedure prescribed by
Section 1991 of the Code of Civil Procedure shall be followed in
seeking an order of a court that the person disclose the information
claimed to be privileged.
