On Dec. 17, 2014, Jeremiah Dobruck and Bradley Zint published an article in the L.A. Times entitled "Costa Mesa Officials May Investigate Reported Tracking of Councilmen." This article is about three council members (Jim Righeimer, Steve Mensinger and Gary Monahan) who were surveilled and harassed by private detectives working for Lackie, Dammeier, McGill & Ethir, a now defunct Upland law firm linked to decidedly gangstalking-like behavior. According to the L.A. Times, the law firm "represented scores of law enforcement agencies across California and had a reputation for its aggressive style of negotiations." The Costa Mesa police union apparently hired the law firm to use its illegal gangstalking tactics against Righeimer, Mensinger and Monahan, all three of whom had raised the ire of the local police due to the fact that they, the councilmen, were attempting to "reduce police pensions and outsource City Hall jobs."
