City Statement on Lunada Bay Lawsuit – August 3, 2017

Post Date:08/03/2017 4:55 PM

August 3, 2017

In the Lunada Bay surfer lawsuit filed against the City of Palos Verdes Estates, Judge Otero has ruled that a confidential investigation report into an alleged leak of information be made public despite the sensitive personal information contained within the report. 

The report documents the City’s efforts to aggressively address claims of localism with regard to Lunada Bay and other City coastal areas.  The report reflects that the City retained a neutral investigator to conduct an independent investigation seeking to determine whether a leak of information had occurred which compromised a planned undercover operation related to alleged acts of localism, and if so, to identify the source of the leak.  The independent investigator concluded that it could not be determined whether a leak of information had occurred, or the identity of the source of the alleged leak if in fact one had occurred. 

 The Palos Verdes Police Department is committed to assuring beach access and recreational tranquility to all people enjoying the Palos Verdes Estates coastline.  Palos Verdes Estates personnel will continue its strong commitment and dedication to serving and protecting the public in a professional manner.
