UPDATED: Lawsuit claims landlord let apartment fall apart, threatened deportation

UPDATE: Ali Golchin was awarded more than $2,000 in rent and $9,000 in attorney fees in an eviction case. As of this writing, he still faces a lawsuit alleging civil rights violations. That case currently is in the discovery phase. We will post further updates as developments happen.

On 06/05/2013 inZnews has received an email directly from Ali Golchin saying:
"Dear Sir/Madam:
I hereby request that you either remove this outdated posting or update it base on its original source. 

The channel 10 news legal department advised channel 10 news to remove the defamatory video from its site. As you can see the link to the video has been removed from their site and only an updated article remains.  The person claiming to be the tenant in the story is a known local oceanside, ca. gang leader.  He and his mother were ordered to vacate the property and were ordered to pay over $11,000.00 in rent and attorneys fees.  The gang member Apelonio Paul Rosas' civil case will soon be over. 

Under the defamation law the person rebroadcasting a defamatory video is also equally liable and the original broadcaster. I hereby am placing you on notice to review your facts and our source and to remove the video both from your site and from your YouTube page. 

Please let me know when you have removed it. 


Ali Golchin, Esq.
Golchin and Associates, APC"

What I say to that is, I thank you for your update on this article. I have updated it as you requested in the first portion of your email, but I will not remove it as in the last portion of your email. For an attorney, you are contradicting yourself. How are you going to give me the option to update and then end by saying remove? The video will remain but will be updated within the description as well as the annotations.

Coincidentally, someone posting a comment, as the first commenter I might add, used the same initials "ag"

I would like to add how funny it is that someone seems to be frantically scrambling to individually contact so many who have posted items with your name. I am not a direct news source, I find news that seems interesting and I re-share it for the world. I do not watch that article or information so that I can update my findings periodically. If someone wanted to inform me of a change or update, I thank them and welcome it. But for one to "update" me and then threaten deformation is silly.
