Let's compare Hill's assertions in the video above, with his written witness statement in
the police report, and Hill's November 21st, 2012 Declaraton (attached to Baker's equally
suspect Opposition to Coughlin's Personal Property Lien of that date in R1C Rev2011-001708,
and with Hill's 1anuary 14th, 2012 grievance letter against Coughlin to the SBN:
-1/14/12 greivance against Coughlin in Letter to Patrick King, Esq. 1anuary 14, 2012 Page 3:
"Someone had been in there since I had last been in several days before. Dr. Merliss discovered
that the baselnent door was barricaded (not locked) fronl the inside. The Reno Police
Department was summoned. They tried to coax whoever was in the basement out, without
success. After Dr. Merliss had to kick the door down, it "vas discovered that Mr. Coughlin had
broken in and was in the basement. He was arrested and is presently facing criminal trespass
charges in Reno Municipal Court. See case no. 11 CR 26405 21."

But any timeliness arguments are further undone by the newly discovered evidence
aspect, and here is one part of it. RPD Officer Travis Warren was there in 1anuary 2012 at a

housemates on E. 9th St.. Warren was there to witness Coughlin video record Lopez and goad
her into admitting that the RPD neither identified themselves as law enforcement or issued
Coughlin a lawful warning or order to leave. And Sargent Lopez has some integrity, so it is and
was difficult for her to play along with Hill and Merliss' fraudulent non-sense. But, add on to
the the fact that Coughlin only just discovered this weekend that RPD Warren and another
officer, and two social worker types met secretly with Coughlin's father, local family
practionern at Coughlin's medical practice's office at some point in the last six months or so.
This likely violates Palmer v. Pioneer, and further underscores the impermissible conflicts that
exist here, made worse by the violations of NRS 178.405 where convenient for various parties
involved here. Further, Dr. Coughlin is Reno City Attorney 1ohn Kadlic's longtime personal
physician and Dr. Coughlin (known as "the 1udge Whisperer" in some circles for being
involved in interventions with numerous local judges over the last 25 years(in addition to his
work with the Impaired Physicians Committee and other diversion programs) has in the past
demonstrated a complete and utter incapability to grasp the concept of boundaries when it
comes to his son, Zach Coughlin, calling up Deans of law schools (Coughlin was deposed by the
State Bar of California regarding an ill advised call by Dr. Coughlin to then Dean of UNLV"s
Boyd School of Law, Richard Morgan, in 2007), State Bars, etc., etc., and offering his various
contradictory diagnosis, all of which tend to border on Munchausen by Proxy at times (a slight
exaggeration, perhaps), though he is a wonderful father otherwise, and a very good man,
however, he is, like all doctors, deeply jealous of any lawyer and wishing he could be one, as is,
apparently, Dr. Merliss (who tried to take over 1udge Sferrazza's court room with an
impromptu cross examination of Coughlin while Merliss was on the witness stand). And,
needless to say, they are both complete and utter control freaks of the highest order. Dr.

Coughlin married the daughter of the neurosurgeon in Morelli v. Morelli (Dr. Coughlin's sister
in law is a lawyer who sued her physician father, and that published opinion is oft cited for
some third party beneficiary point of law incident to marital settlement agreements in Nevada).
So, adding up the behind the scenes sabotage of Coughlin's life, his ability to defend in this
matter (or even get to trial with the video exhibits or proof of subpoenaing the various material
witness (Merliss, Sargent Lopez, Officer Carter, the latter two being under supboena by the
City of Reno and therefore, Coughlin arguably deserved a continuance in response to his
request given their failure to appear, to the extent Coughlin's attempts at subpoenaing them did
not technically comply with applicable rules (which Coughlin si not even sure of given the
arrest, bail, withhold medications, violat Soldal v. Cook Co., get no love from the 1ustice Court,
rinse and repeat Washoe County and the City of Reno, WCSO, RPD, RMC, R1C, City
Attorney's Office, SBN, Richard Hill, and WCDA Office have had Coughlin on in the last 14
months or so....
Regardless, justice dictates at least a hearing on this Motion for New Trial, and or to
Vacate 1udgement, or Arrest 1udgment, etc... RPD Officer Carter, Sargent Lopez, Officer
Warren and a few others (Officer Weaver, Sargent Dye, Sargent Miller) need to answer some
question, under oath...and Richard Hill and Casey Baker have a lot of 'splainin' to do...and add
to that Dr. Merliss. Otherwise...Some of the "peculiarities" attendant to this and other trials
involving Coughlin in the RMC shall, perhaps, get a bit more retrospection...

admitted in reply. State v. Riddell, 21 P.3d 128 Or.App.,2001 In prosecution for criminal
trespass in the second degree, defendant should have been allowed to attack underlying
exclusion order that precluded him from appearing in courthouse square, which defendant
contended was invalid on ground that it prohibited his constitutionally protected activity of
expressive ~freeze modeling in a public area. Hayes v. State, 79 S.E. 761 Ga.App.,1913 A
tenant who in good faith claims possession of land under a bona fide claimant of title and right
of possession cannot be convicted of trespass. O'Banion v. Com., 519 S.E.2d 817 Va.App.,1999
The statutory offense of criminal trespass requires a willful trespass; thus, one who enters or
stays upon another's land under a bona fide claim of right cannot be convicted of
trespass.O'Banion v. Com., 519 S.E.2d 817 Va.App.,1999 A ~bona fide claim of right, which
may serve as a defense to a trespass charge, is a sincere, although perhaps mistaken, good faith
belief that one has some legal right to be on the property; the claim need not be one of title or
ownership, but it must rise to the level of authorization.
The proposed amendment was not the type of an amendment which should have been
allowed under Section 157 of the 1ustice Court Act. A summary proceeding is a statutory
remedy and the petition must be strictly construed. The service of a proper notice against a
tenant holding over, is a jurisdictional fact, which must be properly `805 pleaded and proved. If
the notice is defective or insufficient, the proceeding falls. The notice cannot be amended upon
the trial and no facts can be included as a jurisdictional ground for the proceeding, which are
not included in the original notice. Under the Emergency Housing Rent Control Law Section
8585 of the Unconsolidated Laws as amended by the Laws of 1951 and the regulations of the
Temporary State Housing Rent Commission thereunder, the facts constituting the nuisance are
additional requirements of a notice to a tenant holding over. The facts upon which the landlord

bases his claim of nuisance, are jurisdictional and a summary proceeding cannot be successfully
maintained without full compliance with the statute. A jurisdictional defect cannot be cured by
amendment. Ferber v. Apfel, 113 App.Div. 720, 99 N.Y.S. 215. If the judgment in this case
rested upon a verdict of a jury, I would consider the reception of the evidence of loud and
profane language by the tenants and the submission of that issue to a jury under the present
circumstances, reversible error. However, the Trial Court, in his decision finds, that the tenants
maintained a clothesline approximately five feet from the ground across the rear of the
premises in such a position that it was hazardous and dangerous to the landlords and to the
members of his family who were obliged to pass this clothesline in walking from the garage to
the rear entrance of the portion of the premises occupied by the landlords. He also finds, that
the tenants persisted in maintaining the clothesline in this location contrary to the wishes of the
landlords. In his decision, the Trial Court calls attention to the... N.Y.Co.Ct. 1952 Blozevich v.
Tasber 116 N.Y.S.2d 801
Tenant's failure to raise notice issue in his initial dismissal motion or to plead it with
specificity in his answer did not relieve landlord of its trial burden to establish compliance with
statutory requirements for notice to cure in summary eviction
proceeding.N.Y.Sup.App.Term,2006. W 54-7 LLC v. Schick 14 Misc.3d 49, 829 N.Y.S.2d 399,
2006 N.Y. Slip Op. 26499
Is was reversible error to rule as irrelevant Coughlin's materials on a "claim of right"
defense: License from the owner to access the premises, within meaning of statutory affirmative
defense against prosecution for criminal trespass, is satisfied by showing license from any
owner or other person authorized to license access to the premises. West's Neb.Rev.St. 28-

522. State v. McCave, 282 Neb. 500, 805 N.W.2d 290 (2011). Further, see NRS 40.760 and
108.475.
At the time of Coughlin's arrest, he was a licensed attorney. It would not be reasonable
to expect one to litigate, basically, a plenary unlawful detainer Trial (remixed and
recharacterized as a summarey eviction proceeding over half way through) then expect them to
move out practially overnight, and expect a USPS change of address to adequately allay any
concerns about that attorney's mail being forward in time to avoid any damage to his client's
cases. It is unreasonable to suggest that the RPD can then tackle some attorney stepping foot on
the property to get his mail. And where 1udge Garner ruled all the nonsense about pajamas
(don't look like pajamas in the videos to me, Chris, or Rich) and slippers and "you were living
there (in a civil pleading HIll admits that the stuff in the basement was probably there well
before the eviction, then HIll goes on to ponder about Coughlin preferring to "spider hole"
himself in the basement, even prior to the eviction...Hill has continually demeaned Coughlin
throughout these matters and caused his client to needlessly incur fees).
Further, 1udge Gardner's Order of Conviction was so thin, he almost immediately
started to reach for guidance given by the legistlature or city counsel of something regarding
posting at intervals of this or that...there was zero testimony or evidence about the posting of no
trespassing signs...and zero testimony or citation to the effect that post an eviction notice is
tantamount to posting a no trespassing sign. They are legally distinct.

Strangely, despite Coughlin still being subject to an as yet to be ruled upon Order For
Competency evaluation and despite Coughlin having just the previous day been accepted into
Mental Health Court and the R1C case RCR2011-063341 transferred there, RMC 1udge
William Gardner jammed Coughlin both into proceeding without the Sixth Amendment Right
To Counsel and into some trial setting, even though NRS 178.405 and NRS 5.010 forbids it, and
even though 1udge Gardner admitted to being aware of 1udge Nash Holmes, his fellow RMC
1udge, seeking to have Coughlin's law license taken away based upon a SCR 117 Disability
Petition (1udge Nash Holmes, in her March 14th, 2012 letter/grievance to the State Bar of
Nevada, wherein she purports to speak for 1udge William Gardner and managed to pass on to
the SBN the April 2009 Order For Sanctions by 1udge William Gardner's sister Family Court
1udge Linda Gardner, that 1udge William Gardner passed to 1udge Nash Holmes after
receiving from his sister sometime in the first quarter of 2012$. Incidentally, Coughlin was
previously a domestic violence attorney at Washoe Legal Services until Family Court 1udge

he made in representing a domestic violence victim in a divorce trial were cited by WLS
Executive Director Paul Elcano as the "sole reason" for Coughlin being fired. Coughlin filed a
Petition for Writ of Mandamus in respone to that Order with the Nevada Supreme Court in
54844. Coughlin filed a Notice of Appeal of the dismissal for insufficient service of process of
his wrongful termination case against Washoe Legal Services on February 27th, 2012, and that
matter is currently on appeal with the Nevada Supreme Court in 60302. Oh, and Reno City
Attorney 1ohn Kadlic is a patient of Zach Coughlin's father, Dr. Timothy Coughlin, and the
City of Reno and or the RPD have sought to pressure Coughlin's parents into having him
