California Civil Jury Instructions 1800, derived from Article I, Section I of the California Constitution, states that an individual violates the right to privacy when they:
(1) Plaintiff has a reasonable expectation of privacy;
(2) Defendant intentionally intruded;
(3) That intrusion would be highly offensive to a reasonable person;
(4) Plaintiff was harmed; and
(5) Defendant's conduct was a substantial factor in causing Plaintiff's harm.

Truth is no defense.

Paul Cook distributed documents and posted documents on his website which include Mayor Lozano's social security information (universally considered private in California), various home addresses, and other personally identifiable information. Such information could be used to commit identity fraud and otherwise harm an individual's reputation in a myriad of other ways.

----------

California Business & Professions Code Section 6068(f) "To advance no fact prejudicial to the honor or reputation of a party or witness, unless required..."

Mr. Cook filed suit against the City of Baldwin Park of which Mr. Lozano is Mayor. Thus his advancement of facts to dishonor or shame Mr. Lozano, as evidenced by his blog, directly violates the ethical standards required of attorneys in the State of California.

I think this would be a record for the shortest period of time between admission to the CA state bar and subsequent disbarment. He is an embarrassment to the profession (which is saying something!) and he has not even practiced yet. Please Paul, get a real job even if it is just a paralegal position for now.

Sued??? What a joke!!! Haha The Boxing Lawyer would devour the opposition in the courtroom. I mean, have you heard about the City attorney's "losing streak"? I guess it's a little unfair when your having to defend these "oath breakers" (dirty officials). Lol

Please Paul, get a paralegal job - I'm sure you have loans to repay. Maybe you can then move out of your parents' house while you are still in your 30s. Show some pride.

If disbarred, it would be for his continued veiled allegations/threats of corruption coupled with his currently filed civil action & the civil actions he has threatened to file.

DR 7-105(A) prohibits lawyers from attempting to gain an advantage in a civil proceeding by threatening to bring a criminal prosecution. CRPC 5-100 contains a broader provision, stating that "[a] member shall not threaten to present criminal, administrative, or disciplinary charges to obtain an advantage in a civil dispute." CRPC 5-100(B) defines the term "administrative charges" to include "the filing or lodging of a complaint with a federal, state, or local government entity which may order or recommend the loss or suspension of a license, or may impose or recommend the imposition of a fine, pecuniary sanction, or other sanction of a quasi-criminal nature...." "Administrative charges," however, do not include "filing charges with an administrative entity required by law as a condition precedent to maintaining a civil action." CRPC 5-100(B). It is clear that it is improper to threaten criminal or administrative charges in any matter regardless of whether a civil action has actually been commenced. See CRPC 5-100(C). CRPC 5-100(C) provides that the section is applicable to any "civil dispute" which is defined to include "a controversy or potential controversy over the rights and duties of two or more parties under civil law, whether or not an action has been commenced, and includes an administrative proceeding of a quasi-civil nature pending before a federal, state or local government entity."

The California case law on the subject makes it clear, moreover, that a lawyer cannot make veiled threats to bring a criminal action or administrative charges. See, e.g., Crane v. State Bar (1981) 30 Cal.3d 117, 177 Cal.Rptr. 670, 635 P.2d 163 (concerning notations on letter that copies were being sent to official agency together with statement that conduct was offensive). Indeed, it has been held in California that it is a form of extortion to threaten to report a debtor to the police. Libarian v. State Bar (1952) 38 Cal.2d 328, 239 P.2d 865. Such threats may also constitute tortious abuse of process. See Kinnamon v. Staitman & Snyder (2nd Dist. 1977) 66 Cal.App.3d 893, 136 Cal.Rptr. 321. As noted previously, it is improper under California law to threaten to bring an administrative proceeding against another. See, e.g., Lindenbaum v. State Bar (1945) 26 Cal.2d 565, 160 P.2d 9 (improper for lawyer to report his ex-client's wife to immigration officials as a punitive measure after client, who owed the lawyer fees, declared bankruptcy).

Not only did Cook pass out the mayor's bankruptcy in the council chambers.

He posted it on his blog.

Just google "baldwin park boxing" and it's the third hit titled: Living My story. You can see it on there.

Talk about reaching for the stars! Haha. This stool pigeon lawyer is obviously not so bright. I'm not a lawyer and I see the obvious error in the "defense" of his papa the mayor. lol. To bad De Leon chooses to defend evil, corruption, and unethical behavior. It's rare that you get a lawyer that is really for the people and willingnto stand and fight for what is right. Great job Paul Cook! Keep up the fight! I look forward to reading more of your blogs

Please read your law books a little more carefully your a joke just like when you ran for city council.
The mayor and you are pathetic examples that the city has produced.
Let's see who just got on the housing commission that does nothing. Pull your head out of Lozano and Garcia's asses.
At least know the basics of English grammar if YOU'RE (You are) going to call someone a joke in YOUR (possessive) post.

Or some humility! He brags about how he failed the bar, how he lied to judges to abuse a small businessman over $400 bucks, and now is lying nonstop on his "professional blog" so that kids from the boxing program would "look up" to him.

Ever notice how Cook hangs out with little boys half his age? If I were their parents, I would worry about my kid hanging out with a 31 year old who lives in his parent's basement.

The stuff villains from B horror movies are made.

Open Letter: Thoughts On Your Apology
Dear Mr. Jeffries:
I am writing to address my slight disappointment in your apology. First, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Paul Cook; I am perhaps everything you define as a “cool” kid. I have a dual degree in arts and science, an international Masters in strategy, and law degree from a prestigious law school. As a hobby, I travel the world, and my passions lie in social justice and activism. In addition, I am also an amateur boxer, and logically, the training to be one, conditions my physique so that your clothes are a good fit for me. By me wearing them, as your marketing strategy predicted, more of my friends have and want to purchase your brand.

Hey, not to change the subject, but I recently got a hold of a little sex video of one of the tres amigos. Should I send it to Mr Tuttle or the boxing lawyer? Or both? ;)
