Paladin Security defends itself against lawsuit www.privateofficer.com
Sacramento-based Paladin Security is defending itself in the court of public opinion against a lawsuit it calls frivolous.
The lawsuit, filed last month in Sacramento Superior Court, claims Paladin security guards carried out a military-style raid at the plaintiff’s condo in Elk Grove in the early morning hours of April 30, 2011. The guards pointed Taser guns at the residents of the condo, according the complaint.
Paladin co-owner Scott Johnson says it’s clear that the plaintiff wants money.
“He was fishing on the first day that I spoke with him,” Johnson said.
When FOX40 contacted the plaintiff, Steven Saxon, he asked if we’d pay to get the story. FOX40 refused. Saxon went on to say that they already have big money offers on-the-table from other media outlets.
Saxon’s attorney, Jeffrey Jacobs, did not return calls or an email seeking comment.
Elk Grove police says no report was ever filed by Saxon.
