    A Peninsula community activist filed a lawsuit Friday against the Titans of Mavericks surf contest and its operators in San Mateo County Superior Court.

    John Ullom claims the contest operators, Cartel Management, and others created a fake blog using his name in an effort to discredit him.

    Ullom has been an outspoken critic of the famous surf contest accusing operators of not following the proper steps in obtaining its 2015 permit.

    The lawsuit contends the false website and email made accusations against public officials in Ullom's name.

    Ullom's lawsuit says the website has damaged his credibility and image in the community.

    He was not available for comment.

    A message asking for a reaction by Cartel Management was delivered to its representatives Friday night.
