I have recently been evicted and it has caused enormous upheaval to my life, and I am indigent, as such, I believe a
continuance is necessary and ask that you seek one for the December 13th, 2011 "trial" that I only became aware of through
calling the Reno Municipal Court. Also, please provide me a copy of any motions or pleadings you have filed on my behalf
and any documentation that you have been provided by the court, opposing counsel, or anyone else. I prefer such
documentation be emailed, but I realize that may not be possible. I would like to obtain a copy of the Complaint and
Discovery, including the probable cause sheets and any witness statements as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

Zach Coughlin

Maybe that will be easier, that is where the exculpatory video evidence is sent to you as well, a continuation of
exhibit one. I appreciate the RMC allowing me to file via email this way as sometimes my fax service is clunky.

Judge Howard informed me during his oral pronounce of his Contempt Order and Guilty Verdict on 11 30,2011
that he would afford me an additional 3 non judicial days to file a Notice of Appeal or any other Motion, Request
for Reconsideration, or other Motion seeking relief from his 11 30 2011 rulings on account of his sua sponte, with
no possibility of Stay or prior judicial review ordering his Marshalls to slam be into handcuffs and throw me into
Jail, kind of like in Houston v. 8th Judicial District Court, escept Judge Howard didn't cool down like Judge
Pomeranz did and Houston wasn't defending a criminal charge that carred a possibility of incarceration of
substantial length after being denied his 6th Amendment Right to Counsel. I am formally complaining about
Judge Howard;s conduct in that regard, please place a copy of this in his personnel file and let me know whether
you think a Complaint to the Judicial Discipline Commission would be appropriate, in your professional opinion.
I filed my Notice of Appeal in 11 cr 22176 yesterday with the RMC via email, as previously given permission to do
by the RMC. To the extent that was ineffective, let this writing act as a Notice of Appeal and agreement to pay
all charges required for such.

me a copy of his file. 1 would like one, or a copy of any complaints against
any Marshals, but 1 realize a subpoena would likely be required to have any
chance at that. Negligent Training, Hiring, Supervision.
1 never received a copy of the Contempt Finding and Guilty
Verdict/Judgment/ORder or whatever from the 11 30, 2011 Trial before Judge
Howard in 11 CR22176 21, though "Veronica" (no one will tell me her last
name, but she works closely with the RMC Judges) said the only "service" of
those Orders that was ever attempted on me occured while 1 was handcuffed,
after which point some Marshalls (I did not catch their names and they
manhandled me roughly into handcuffs, refusing to even let me save my
notes on my laptop at the sudden conclusion of Judge Howards Order and
Contempt finding. This is truly reprehensible to not even let me save my
damn notes and act like 1 was some perp who just knocked of a god damn
liquor store with a fIrearm. Some people need to get a grip inside. Please
place a copy of this written complaint against whatever Marshals were
involved in that in their employment/personnel files as well. Please provide
me a copy of any complaints you have received against any Marshals.
1 would like a copy of the 11 30,2011 Order and the audio of the Trial. 1
believe you have a duty to fmd out what those Marshals did with this
document that "Veronica" alleges they attempted to serve on me, though,
even 14 days after the Trial, the "docket" in the RMC filing office still
contains no Order, no mention of an Order, and certainly no Proof of Service
of anything of the sort, nor have they responded to any of my documentation
requests or a request of the audio of the Trial of 11 30,2011, despite an
exigent need for such to prepare Relief from Judgment Motions that have
deadlines of 10-20 days from "service" of the "Order", and who knows how
that will be measure. Why it was necessary to cost the public a bunch of
overtime pay for the 5 or so Marshalls, and who knows how many court staff
to stay until nearly 9pm on 11 30,2011 to complete this "Trial", and how it
was such a damn emergency, especially where Richard Hill was able to get a
continuance because he was going to be on vacation in the trespass case
against me 11 CR 22185 21, despite the fact that Lew Taitel never receive my
consent to such a Motion for Continuance, and further Taitel was arguably
conflicted out of representing me considering his "association" with Nevada
Court Services and the torts the committed against me, which resulted in a
Hotmail Print Message http://by148w.bay148.mail.live.com/mail/PrintMessages.aspx?cpids=4b...
24 of 47 1/29/2012 8:20 PM
lawsuit being filed against them, or at least an IPF Petition and Proposed
Complaint in District Court, prior to Taitel's appointment and representation.
If the RMC can afford all that damn overtime for everyone, why couldn't it
appoint me a defense attorney in RMC 11 CR 22176, especially where Judge
Howard ruled, not 20 minutes into Trial that he was finding me in Contempt
of Court and would decide the sentence (which obviously included a
possibility of incarceration) at the conclusion of the Trial?
Further M. Mentzel clearly bumped Donna Ballard out of the way in his zeal
to establish dominance of me, a person who was providing absolutely no
resistance at the time. Mentzel went on to start order me to leave the
premises after my conversation with Ballard and the file clerk was done.
Duh, Mentzel, it was 5:00 pm or so "closing time" what do you think I am
going to do, hang out and chill with you guys? Look at the Notice of Hearing
or Docket in RMC 11 CR22176 21 (I am also hereby requesting a copy of
the audio or video of the hearing from the RMC) and the hand written
interlineations I made on the document M. Mentzel provided me in court on
10 11,2011, where I mention the problems associated with asking questions
about my Sixth Amendment Right to Counsel where only the possibility of
jail time exists. I asked Mentzel at that time a question about the process and
he got very angry, threatening, and insulting with me, then later, criticized my
appearance before Judge Gardner, I believe he said I was "sarcastic" and or
rude to the Judge in the same way I had been to Mentzel himself. I submit
that citizens trying to access justice should not be taken as a personal affront
to RMC employees like Mentzel, and that he needs to strongly consider how
he comes across to the public when he acts the way he does, and carries a
firearm, color of law, a badge, and apparently, the blessing of the RMC in
carrying out behavior that seems more fitting for a nightclub bouncer than a
Marshal. Further, the video played at arraignments is overly hostile and
threatening in my opinion, especially the parts where Judge Gardner makes
statements on the "extremely" poor choice it would be to represent one's self
pro se and all these tones and words used that make it sound like pro se
defendants will be punished for not either copping a plea or going with one
of the "four former prosecutors" who are now drawing a paycheck from the
RMC/Citizenry to fulfill the Sixth Amendment. I am something completely
other than impressed with the work done by Lew Taitel, Esq. for me in RMC
11 CR 22185 21, in that regard. Why shouldn't defendants in the RMC, after
viewing the arraignment video and receiving representation like that which I

received from Taitel, feel like lambs being led to slaughter? Baah,
baaaaaaaaah! Two other Marshals were there yesterday when Mentzel was
berating me, I would like their names, please.
Now, just awhile ago, "RMC Court Transcriptionist Pam Longoni" called me
on the phone ("while driving" according to Ms. Longoni) and informed me
that the RMC must permit her access to the audio files, and that, while she is
linked into "their system" (meaning the RMC's), the RMC must take some
additional step to allow Ms. Longoni to access the audio files and continue
with the process of tending ot a request for a Transcript on Appeal. I was
told by a female RMC counter clerk that 1 would not ever be provided a copy
of the audio recording of the 11 30,2011 Trial, but that 1 may purchase from
Ms. Longoni an official transcript, and that "appeal transcripts are billed at
$4.10 per page" etc. and that a substantial deposit would be required, and that
"No Transcript is considered to be official ordered, and commencement of
transcription will not begin, until receipt of the required deposit. .. " I asked
Ms. Longoni to inform me of everything I must do or pay to have the
transcript deemd officialy ordered and she informed me that she could not tell
me that, despite the apparent hard and fast deadlines applied to ordering,
officially, such a transcript, with the RMC in an Appeal context, until the
RMC allowed Ms. Longoni to access the RMC "system" and viewlhear the
audio of the 11 30,2011 Trial in 11 CR22176 21. Ms. Longoni angrily hung
up the phone on me and is now not returning my calls and has failed to
respond to my request that she inform me, in writing, as to where to send
money or a deposit or anything else required for the transcript. I have yet to
receive a fax from the RMC's "Veronica" (whose last name has repeatedly
been denied to me) despite her angry assurances on the phone on 12 12,2011
that she would finally hae the RMC attempt to appropriately (or almost
appropriately) serve me a copy of the Contempt Finding and Guilty Order
stemming from the 11 30, 2011 Trial in RMC 11 CR 2217621. Please have
this request and communication reiterated to whoever it concerns at the
RMC, and have such a copy of those documents emailed, faxed, and mailed
in the US Postal Service mail immediately. Further, please do the same with
respect to the audio of the 11 30,2011 Trial in RMC 11 CR 2217621, and of
course I will pay a reasonable cost for the cd to the extent my IFP is not
granted. The RJC and Washoe District Court charge about $30 per cd. The

force them to fIrst. Please ask the gentleman Ms. Ballard saw me working
with yesterday what he said in that regard about providing me a copy of
anything, much less the docket in either RMC 11 CR 2217621 or RMC 11

I believe I am entitled to a copy of the audio recording quickly, whether or
not a transcript has been officialy ordered, for the purposes of appeal or for
any other purposes. I believe in something called "transparency" in
goverment. Sunshine.
Let me ask you a question: If a Judge told you to jump off a bridge, would
you? It is my belief that Judge Howard ordered everyone to clear the
courtroom, including a female, shortly after my 11 20,2011 Trial began and
it became clear that I was not going to lay down meekly for the Court, or for
Wal-Mart, or for the Reno City Attorney. 2 million of my people starved to
death during a "Great Famine" between 1848-1850 in Ireland, despite being
surrounded by water and fIsh, where the English were arresting Irishmen who
attempted to save their families and their own live's by fIshing. I will be
fIshing here, gentleman. Deal with it. I want that recording, for, among
many other reasons, to see if Judge Howard merely asked those who might
be called as witnesses to leave or whether he demanded every member of the
public leave before he sent me off to Guantanamo, er, I mean the Washoe
County Detention Facility after the Military Tribunal, er, the Trial in RMC.
Interestingly, while at the Washoe County Detention Facility, I have been
made to strip naked while being videotaped, wear a green dress for days on
end, go without a toothbrush for days, refused any opportunity to make
phone calls to protect my clients cases from prejudice, forced to spread apart
my buttocks and allow an overly long look at my anus by Sheriffs Deputies,
and further, I was forced to submit to a position on my knees in the
immediate vicinity of two Sheriffs Deputies crotches in some sadistic forced
simulation of performing oral sex upon those men. Rico/Negligent Hiring,
Training, Supervision, 42 USC Sec. 1983 Deprivation of Civil Rights Under
Color of State Law, etc., etc. Qui Tam, Whistleblower. Mr. Roper, I doubt a
Federal Court Judge would require that I have come obtained a Statement
From you to complain about any Marshal's conduct. I am pretty sure this and
my other correspondences have placed you on notice.

Mr. Coughlin,
I received your message that you left on my phone on December 13, 2011 in regards to a complaint against Marshal
Menzel. The Marshal Division takes all citizen complaints seriously and investigates all complaints received in writing or
verbally. However, I would need more information from you prior to moving forward with an investigation. I encourage
you to come to the court to obtain a statement form, or contact me directly should you wish to pursue this matter. As to
your request to obtain a copy of Marshal Menzel's personnel file, I am unable to provide that to you without a valid
subpoena or warrant.

RE: . City of reno v Coughlin RMC 11 CR 22176 2I
Motion for New Trial,Notice of appeal and other issues
Dear RMC,

I do not mean to be disrespectful in contacting the court via email. I have been so stamped
out by the events of the last few months that its all I can do to try to protect my rights to get
information and media to the court in my attempts to access justice. Veronica Lopez told me on
the phone on Monday of this week that she would fax me a copy of the Order and Contempt finding from the 11
30, 2011 Trial, yet I have not received any such fax. I have not received any order in any form, not on my release
from the 3 days summary incarceration, not ever. The RMC confirmed there has been no Notice of Entry of any
order in their docket or anything, etc.

I believe the following should be added to record and presents a strong argument for a
conflict of interest or other 60(b) basis for setting aside the verdict and contempt Order in
RMC 11 CR 22176 2I. I did not plead guilty in that case, and any RMC record that
suggests that is completely inaccurate. Please let me know if your records indicate I plead
guilty in that matter. Further, I have never been provided a copy of the Guilty Verdict/Order
in this matter, I requested on to be emailed to me and sent in the USPS mail. Please serve
me a copy of the order, preferably by email and USPS mail. Further, the "RMC's official
court transcriptionist" informed me yesterday that she could not quote me or accept an
money from me for the transcript on appeal. Further I have been told by court staff that I
would never be provided access to the audio recording of the Trial of 11 30, 2011. I believe
I have a right to it, and need it on an exigent basis in connection with the various motions I
have, will, or intend to to file challenging the decision in this case. The RMC filing office
informed me there has been no Notice of Entry of Order in this matter at this point.

Unbelievable. The idea that exculpating evidence is being withheld under some "lien" is transmitted into the
universe, next thing I know, my law office is broken in to and the Richard B. Hill gang is stil asserting a lien on
property that was stolen, in my opinion, as a result of their own negligence, leaving a window air conditioner unit
in a window, without even putting a window jam between the top of the sill and lower pain, facing a sidewalk a
block from the Lakemill Lodge and across from City Center Apartments, great. Great. And I still have not been
faxed or appropriately served the Order and Contempt Order I was told would be faxed to me.

Dear Mr. Baker,
I drove by the property recently and saw you had added boarding up the front door on very, very recently.
Unfortunately, your client and your firm, despite billing up some $1,060 for "securing" the property on top of
charging $900 for storage for what could fit inside a 10x20 foot storage shed, never once providing an inventory,
and contributing to a wrongful arrest and defamation causing me and my clients great damage, failed to take
even basic steps to secure the property, despite my making numerous written requests that you do so, including,
but not limited to, taking the damn window unit air conditioner out of the window facing the sidewalk on the
side of the house very close to the damn Lakemill Lodge, or even putting a strong stick in between the bottom
sliding window pain and the top of the sill to prevent someone from simply pushing in the window unit air
conditioner and pushing the window up to gain access. Further, a blanket that was on the orange circular couch
is clearly in the flower bed in front of the house. Additionally, there are reports that someone with your office
gave someone a mattress from the inventory of Coughlin Memory Foam (a Nevada licensed business located at

are, of course, liable for all of this.

Dear RMC,
It is my understanding the J udge Howard's order regarding email does not extend to the
address to which I am sending this correspondence: renomunirecords@reno.gov which is
the email address filing office supervisor Donna Ballard indicated to me was acceptable for
sending correspondence and filings to the RMC in lieu of faxes. I am writing because the
email address I was provided for RMC "official transcriptionist" Pam Longoni yielded a
"return to sender/failed transmission" message when I wrote to the email address provided
for her: plongoni@charter.net. Further, please see the forwarded email below that I sent to
Ms. Longoni. I have not received a return call from her regarding my recent messages to
her. I was told by a RMC filing office counter employee that I must get the transcript
through Ms. Longoni, as she is the "official transcriptionist" for the RMC. Please confirm
that I am no able to have another certified court reporter or transcriptionist create the
official transcript and indicate by what date this must be done, how it must be done, etc.

I was told by RMC filing office staff, including Ms. Ballard, that the RMC would not accept
any filings fees, bonds, or any other payments from me in relation to the underlying case 11
CR22176 2I or the appeal of that matter given that the RMC was holding the bail money I
paid into the court. If this is not the case or if I must pay anything into the RMC to ensure
that my appeal goes forward, please indicate as much in writing and with particularity. If I
am able to use any other transcriptionists and or the RMC has a list of such with contact
information, please provide such in writing.

Sincerely,

/s/Zach Coughlin

Please find attached a 6 page pdf with this Affidavit/Declaration and the accompanying copies of the
two citations and the proof of insurance at the time and date of both citations and the same for the
registration for the vehicle. I am disputing the "failure to come to a complete stop" part of the citation
in 544281 and understanding that I have a hearing in Reno Municipal Court on 2 6 12 at 8:30 am in
that regard, please correct me if that is not the correct date and time.


Also, I have called several times and keeping leaving messages about disputing the following parking
tickets, and do not believe any "additional fines" should have attached to the base fine where I have
communicated that I am disputing them and have not receive a response with regard to the date and
time of my hearing to dispute them:

Ms. Ballard,
Please note, the gentleman I worked with at the filing office counter today informed me there were no appeal
fees, bonds, or other charges that I could pay (including transcription costs) as "all charges are being taken
from" my bail in the respective matters. Please email me the audio from the November 20th,2011 Trial in 11 cr
22176 2I and proof of service of any Contempt Order or Guilty Verdict/Order in that matter. Please file this as
well as a Opposition to Any Motion to Continue Trial in 11 cr 26405, dept 2, and a Motion to Set Aside or
Vacate any Order Granting Continuance in response to such an Order Granting Continuance. Please email,
fax, or mail me a copy of the Notice of Appearances by both Taitel and Puentes and the Motion and Order
Granting Withdrawal of Taitel, if it exists. I would like a copy of the docket in both 11 CR 26405 2I and 11 CR
22176, despite your informing me today that I would need to subpoena the docket to have any chance of
seeing it and that I would not be provided access to documents in the public record, including Orders in both
of these cases.

Sincerely,

Dear Chief Marshal Roper, and the RMC,

Thank you for your quick reply. I actually requested a copy of some
documentation related to my complaints about both incidents with Marshal
Mentzel be placed in his employment or personnel file, not that you provide
Hotmail Print Message http://by148w.bay148.mail.live.com/mail/PrintMessages.aspx?cpids=e4...

me a copy of his file. I would like one, or a copy of any complaints against
any Marshals, but I realize a subpoena would likely be required to have any
chance at that. Negligent Training, Hiring, Supervision.

I never received a copy of the Contempt Finding and Guilty
Verdict/J udgment/ORder or whatever from the 11 30, 2011 Trial before Judge
Howard in 11 CR22176 2I, though "Veronica" (no one will tell me her last
name, but she works closely with the RMC Judges) said the only "service" of
those Orders that was ever attempted on me occured while I was handcuffed,
after which point some Marshalls (I did not catch their names and they
manhandled me roughly into handcuffs, refusing to even let me save my
notes on my laptop at the sudden conclusion of Judge Howards Order and
Contempt finding. This is truly reprehensible to not even let me save my
damn notes and act like I was some perp who just knocked of a god damn
liquor store with a firearm. Some people need to get a grip inside. Please
place a copy of this written complaint against whatever Marshals were
involved in that in their employment/personnel files as well. Please provide
me a copy of any complaints you have received against any Marshals.

I would like a copy of the 11 30, 2011 Order and the audio of the Trial. I
believe you have a duty to find out what those Marshals did with this
document that "Veronica" alleges they attempted to serve on me, though,
even 14 days after the Trial, the "docket" in the RMC filing office still
contains no Order, no mention of an Order, and certainly no Proof of Service
of anything of the sort, nor have they responded to any of my documentation
requests or a request of the audio of the Trial of 11 30, 2011, despite an
exigent need for such to prepare Relief from Judgment Motions that have
deadlines of 10-20 days from "service" of the "Order", and who knows how
that will be measure. Why it was necessary to cost the public a bunch of
overtime pay for the 5 or so Marshalls, and who knows how many court staff
to stay until nearly 9pm on 11 30, 2011 to complete this "Trial", and how it
was such a damn emergency, especially where Richard Hill was able to get a
continuance because he was going to be on vacation in the trespass case
against me 11 CR 22185 2I, despite the fact that Lew Taitel never receive my
consent to such a Motion for Continuance, and further Taitel was arguably
conflicted out of representing me considering his "association" with Nevada
Court Services and the torts the committed against me, which resulted in a
Hotmail Print Message http://by148w.bay148.mail.live.com/mail/PrintMessages.aspx?cpids=e4...
9 of 22 1/29/2012 9:43 PM
lawsuit being filed against them, or at least an IPF Petition and Proposed
Complaint in District Court, prior to Taitel's appointment and representation.
If the RMC can afford all that damn overtime for everyone, why couldn't it
appoint me a defense attorney in RMC 11 CR 22176, especially where Judge
Howard ruled, not 20 minutes into Trial that he was finding me in Contempt
of Court and would decide the sentence (which obviously included a
possibility of incarceration) at the conclusion of the Trial?
Further M. Mentzel clearly bumped Donna Ballard out of the way in his zeal
to establish dominance of me, a person who was providing absolutely no
resistance at the time. Mentzel went on to start order me to leave the
premises after my conversation with Ballard and the file clerk was done.
Duh, Mentzel, it was 5:00 pm or so "closing time" what do you think I am
going to do, hang out and chill with you guys? Look at the Notice of Hearing
or Docket in RMC 11 CR22176 2I (I am also hereby requesting a copy of
the audio or video of the hearing from the RMC) and the hand written
interlineations I made on the document M. Mentzel provided me in court on
10 11, 2011, where I mention the problems associated with asking questions
about my Sixth Amendment Right to Counsel where only the possibility of
jail time exists. I asked Mentzel at that time a question about the process and
he got very angry, threatening, and insulting with me, then later, criticized my
appearance before Judge Gardner, I believe he said I was "sarcastic" and or
rude to the Judge in the same way I had been to Mentzel himself. I submit
that citizens trying to access justice should not be taken as a personal affront
to RMC employees like Mentzel, and that he needs to strongly consider how
he comes across to the public when he acts the way he does, and carries a
firearm, color of law, a badge, and apparently, the blessing of the RMC in
carrying out behavior that seems more fitting for a nightclub bouncer than a
Marshal. Further, the video played at arraignments is overly hostile and
threatening in my opinion, especially the parts where Judge Gardner makes
statements on the "extremely" poor choice it would be to represent one's self
pro se and all these tones and words used that make it sound like pro se
defendants will be punished for not either copping a plea or going with one
of the "four former prosecutors" who are now drawing a paycheck from the
RMC/Citizenry to fulfill the Sixth Amendment. I am something completely
other than impressed with the work done by Lew Taitel, Esq. for me in RMC
11 CR 22185 2I, in that regard. Why shouldn't defendants in the RMC, after
viewing the arraignment video and receiving representation like that which I

received from Taitel, feel like lambs being led to slaughter? Baah,
baaaaaaaaah! Two other Marshals were there yesterday when Mentzel was
berating me, I would like their names, please.

Now, just awhile ago, "RMC Court Transcriptionist Pam Longoni" called me
on the phone ("while driving" according to Ms. Longoni) and informed me
that the RMC must permit her access to the audio files, and that, while she is
linked into "their system" (meaning the RMC's), the RMC must take some
additional step to allow Ms. Longoni to access the audio files and continue
with the process of tending ot a request for a Transcript on Appeal. I was
told by a female RMC counter clerk that I would not ever be provided a copy
of the audio recording of the 11 30, 2011 Trial, but that I may purchase from
Ms. Longoni an official transcript, and that "appeal transcripts are billed at
$4.10 per page" etc. and that a substantial deposit would be required, and that
"No Transcript is considered to be official ordered, and commencement of
transcription will not begin, until receipt of the required deposit..." I asked
Ms. Longoni to inform me of everything I must do or pay to have the
transcript deemd officialy ordered and she informed me that she could not tell
me that, despite the apparent hard and fast deadlines applied to ordering,
officially, such a transcript, with the RMC in an Appeal context, until the
RMC allowed Ms. Longoni to access the RMC "system" and view/hear the
audio of the 11 30, 2011 Trial in 11 CR22176 2I. Ms. Longoni angrily hung
up the phone on me and is now not returning my calls and has failed to
respond to my request that she inform me, in writing, as to where to send
money or a deposit or anything else required for the transcript. I have yet to
receive a fax from the RMC's "Veronica" (whose last name has repeatedly
been denied to me) despite her angry assurances on the phone on 12 12, 2011
that she would finally hae the RMC attempt to appropriately (or almost
appropriately) serve me a copy of the Contempt Finding and Guilty Order
stemming from the 11 30, 2011 Trial in RMC 11 CR 22176 2I. Please have
this request and communication reiterated to whoever it concerns at the
RMC, and have such a copy of those documents emailed, faxed, and mailed
in the US Postal Service mail immediately. Further, please do the same with
respect to the audio of the 11 30, 2011 Trial in RMC 11 CR 22176 2I, and of
course I will pay a reasonable cost for the cd to the extent my IFP is not
granted. The RJ C and Washoe District Court charge about $30 per cd. The
also provide copies of the dockets in cases without demanding a subpoena

force them to first. Please ask the gentleman Ms. Ballard saw me working
with yesterday what he said in that regard about providing me a copy of
anything, much less the docket in either RMC 11 CR 22176 2I or RMC 11
CR 22185 2I.

I believe I am entitled to a copy of the audio recording quickly, whether or
not a transcript has been officialy ordered, for the purposes of appeal or for
any other purposes. I believe in something called "transparency" in
goverment. Sunshine.

Let me ask you a question: If a J udge told you to jump off a bridge, would
you? It is my belief that Judge Howard ordered everyone to clear the
courtroom, including a female, shortly after my 11 20, 2011 Trial began and
it became clear that I was not going to lay down meekly for the Court, or for
Wal-Mart, or for the Reno City Attorney. 2 million of my people starved to
death during a "Great Famine" between 1848-1850 in Ireland, despite being
surrounded by water and fish, where the English were arresting Irishmen who
attempted to save their families and their own live's by fishing. I will be
fishing here, gentleman. Deal with it. I want that recording, for, among
many other reasons, to see if J udge Howard merely asked those who might
be called as witnesses to leave or whether he demanded every member of the
public leave before he sent me off to Guantanamo, er, I mean the Washoe
County Detention Facility after the Military Tribunal, er, the Trial in RMC.
Interestingly, while at the Washoe County Detention Facility, I have been
made to strip naked while being videotaped, wear a green dress for days on
end, go without a toothbrush for days, refused any opportunity to make
phone calls to protect my clients cases from prejudice, forced to spread apart
my buttocks and allow an overly long look at my anus by Sheriff's Deputies,
and further, I was forced to submit to a position on my knees in the
immediate vicinity of two Sheriff's Deputies crotches in some sadistic forced
simulation of performing oral sex upon those men. Rico/Negligent Hiring,
Training, Supervision, 42 USC Sec. 1983 Deprivation of Civil Rights Under
Color of State Law, etc., etc. Qui Tam, Whistleblower. Mr. Roper, I doubt a
Federal Court Judge would require that I have come obtained a Statement
From you to complain about any Marshal's conduct. I am pretty sure this and
my other correspondences have placed you on notice.

Mr. Coughlin,
I received your message that you left on my phone on December 13, 2011 in regards to a complaint against Marshal
Menzel. The Marshal Division takes all citizen complaints seriously and investigates all complaints received in writing or
verbally. However, I would need more information fromyou prior to moving forward with an investigation. I encourage
you to come to the court to obtain a statement form, or contact me directly should you wish to pursue this matter. As to

Motion for NewTrial,Noticeof appeal andother issues
Dear RMC,

I do not mean to be disrespectful in contacting the court via email. I have been so stamped
out by the events of the last few months that its all I can do to try to protect my rights to get
information and media to the court in my attempts to access justice. Veronica Lopez told me on
the phone on Monday of this week that she would fax me a copy of the Order and Contempt finding from the 11
30, 2011 Trial, yet I have not received any such fax. I have not received any order in any form, not on my release
from the 3 days summary incarceration, not ever. The RMC confirmed there has been no Notice of Entry of any
order in their docket or anything, etc.

I believe the following should be added to record and presents a strong argument for a
conflict of interest or other 60(b) basis for setting aside the verdict and contempt Order in
RMC 11 CR 22176 2I. I did not plead guilty in that case, and any RMC record that
suggests that is completely inaccurate. Please let me know if your records indicate I plead
guilty in that matter. Further, I have never been provided a copy of the Guilty Verdict/Order
in this matter, I requested on to be emailed to me and sent in the USPS mail. Please serve
me a copy of the order, preferably by email and USPS mail. Further, the "RMC's official
court transcriptionist" informed me yesterday that she could not quote me or accept an
money from me for the transcript on appeal. Further I have been told by court staff that I
would never be provided access to the audio recording of the Trial of 11 30, 2011. I believe
I have a right to it, and need it on an exigent basis in connection with the various motions I
have, will, or intend to to file challenging the decision in this case. The RMC filing office
informed me there has been no Notice of Entry of Order in this matter at this point.

Unbelievable. The idea that exculpating evidence is being withheld under some "lien" is transmitted into the
universe, next thing I know, my law office is broken in to and the Richard B. Hill gang is stil asserting a lien on
property that was stolen, in my opinion, as a result of their own negligence, leaving a window air conditioner unit

Dear Mr. Baker,
I drove by the property recently and saw you had added boarding up the front door on very, very recently.
Unfortunately, your client and your firm, despite billing up some $1,060 for "securing" the property on top of
charging $900 for storage for what could fit inside a 10x20 foot storage shed, never once providing an inventory,
and contributing to a wrongful arrest and defamation causing me and my clients great damage, failed to take
even basic steps to secure the property, despite my making numerous written requests that you do so, including,
but not limited to, taking the damn window unit air conditioner out of the window facing the sidewalk on the
side of the house very close to the damn Lakemill Lodge, or even putting a strong stick in between the bottom

sliding window pain and the top of the sill to prevent someone from simply pushing in the window unit air
conditioner and pushing the window up to gain access. Further, a blanket that was on the orange circular couch
is clearly in the flower bed in front of the house. Additionally, there are reports that someone with your office
gave someone a mattress from the inventory of Coughlin Memory Foam (a Nevada licensed business located at
the property) and an expensive mattress platform has clearly been damaged and placed in the flower bed as
well, in addition to one of the wooden porch shades being removed from the front porch. You and your client
are, of course, liable for all of this.

The River Rock property has been broken into. We believe the break-in occurred sometime on Monday,
December 12, 2011. There appear to be items missing, including the TV in the living room, perhaps a computer
monitor, and perhaps some stereo equipment. I cant tell what else. The contents of the residence appear to
have been rifled through.

I am providing you with this information as a courtesy. This email does NOT constitute permission for you to go

My name is Zach Coughlin. I wish to obtain any and all records available
incident to an arrest at the E. 2nd St. Walmart by the Reno Sparks Indian
Colony Police on or about Saturday October 10th, 2011 at between
approximately 9pm and 10:30pm. I want any and all records, video, audio,
paper documentation or otherwise that I have a right to. I am representing
myself. I have sought these records from the Reno Municipal Court's
Records Office and they kept telling me they didn't have them yet and that I
should return sometime soon. Finally, they admitted the do not keep these
records and they must be obtained from your office. This delay has unduly
prejudiced my case and I request that you provide these records to me at
once, with no delay, please. The RS Indian Colony Police refused to give me
a copy of these records today when I spoke with Sargent Avansino, who was
polite and helpful otherwise. I believe this case should be dismissed.
Signed electronically and signed in a signed attached PDF. I can come pick
the records up with identification if that is required or I hereby give you

Dear Reno Sparks Indian Colony Police Department and Counsel,
My name is Zach Coughlin. I have now been informed by both the Reno
Municipal Court and the Reno City Attorney's officer that neither entity can
provide my requested records. You have them, I believe I have a
constitutional right to them. If you feel differently, please explain in writing
why that is the case. Please review:

detention of sus-
pected shoplifters, 47 A.L.R. 3d 998

police protection, 46

Personal liability of policeman, sheriffs, or similar peace officer or his bond,
for injury suffered as
a result of failure to enforce law or arrest lawbreaker, 41 A.L.R. 3d 700
Admissibility of defendant's rules or instructions for dealing with shoplifters,
in action for false
imprisonment or malicious prosecution, 31 A.L.R. 3D 705
Genuine issue of material fact, as to whether homeowner voluntarily
consented to warrantless search of his residence, or whether he had been
coerced into giving his consent by officers' alleged refusal to honor his
requests to speak with attorney, and by their alleged threats that, unless he
con- sented, he would be forced to wait outside while officers obtained
warrant and then "t[ore] his house apart and arrest[ed] his girlfriend,"

Dear Reno Sparks Indian Colony Police Records Department and

Colony Police on or about Saturday October 10th, 2011 at between
approximately 9pm and 10:30pm. I want any and all records, video, audio,
paper documentation or otherwise that I have a right to. I am representing
myself. I have sought these records from the Reno Municipal Court's
Records Office and they kept telling me they didn't have them yet and that I
should return sometime soon. Finally, they admitted the do not keep these
records and they must be obtained from your office. This delay has unduly
prejudiced my case and I request that you provide these records to me at
once, with no delay, please. The RS Indian Colony Police refused to give me
a copy of these records today when I spoke with Sargent Avansino, who was
polite and helpful otherwise. I believe this case should be dismissed.
Signed electronically and signed in a signed attached PDF. I can come pick
the records up with identification if that is required or I hereby give you
permission to email them to me or mail them to the address below:
Zach Coughlin

FAR MORE COGNITIVELY IMPAIRED IN COURT THAN HE DID IN PERSON, TO AN EXTENT
THAT WOULD SUGGEST HE WAS DISHONORING THE LEGAL PROCESS BY HIS
"PARTICIPATION", AND ITS ALL ON TAPE.
I want you to move for, OR ASK THE CITY ATTORNEY TO MOVE
FOR, a Rule 59 Motion to Set Aside or some other motion to have the
Judgment Set Aside. Your cop witness clearly had a driver's license
produced to him at the 6:49 mark of WALMART'S OWN DAMN VIDEO!
And you suborned his perjury on the witness stand in violation of many of
the POLICE CODES YOU ARE HELD TO. Further, what are you going to
say when the UPC from the alleged receipt appears on the purchased receipt,
in combination with Frontino's adamant assertion that they wouldn't, in
combination with the same from Crawford, in combination with Frontino
admitting he couldn't hear what was said between the accused and the
cashier, in combination with the "same UPC, hit the quantity number"
practice common at Walmart? Further, your Officer Crawford, as a witness,
admitted on tape at the trial that "he didn't have enough EVIDENCE to issue
a citation so he arrested and did a search incident to arrest" to get more
evidence before Reno City Attorney Roberts and Judge Howard could jump
in and cut him off. That's gametime. Frontino, Crawford, and Braunworth,
sat around joking like goofy frat boys the preceeding 30 minutes in the
hallway in front of the court room, like a group of 3 buddies who hang out all
the time, except, 2 get paid by you, and one gets paid by Wal-Mart, who pay
the people who pay you. Then all three of them wait around the hear the
verdict at 8 pm hours after Frontino and Crawford finished testifying.
Maybe the don't realize Judge Howard wasn't ruling on the Appeal, the Rule
59, 60 motions, Motion for Reconsideration, defamation, wrongful arrest,
false imprisonment lawsuits, etc. Fix it now while you can. Wait till I get the
video from Walmart that Frontino is hiding from you, and don't you just want
to know if some "other" audio or video exists of the interrogation.

Dear RSIC Police and Ms. Carthen,
Please provide me a copy of the video cd/dvd that Walmart's Frontino handed
your two Officers, Kameron Crawford and Braunworth when they were
escorting the suspect from the interrogation room in RMC 11 CR 22176. I
don't care if you think the tape/disc is not probative. I want it. Plus I want all
the dispatch tapes, especially where Kameron is calling in the suspect's
driver's license (which he testified the suspect refused to give him, but darn
it, its right there on the interrogation room footage, Kameron being givent he
driver's license card. Then the walmart guy Frontino testifies there was not
footage other than the interrogation room footage, yet he clearly hands the
two RSIC officers a cd/dvd when there are leaving the room. I am still
bothered that Sargent Avansino stonewalled me on the discovery for a whole
month following the arrest.

while you can. Wait till I get the video from Walmart that Frontino is hiding
from you, and don't you just want to know if some "other" audio or
video exists of the interrogation.

Dear Counselor Roberts,
I believe you are the prosecutor for the case against me, State v. Coughlin,
which I believe is still set for trial on November 14th, I think at 1pm. I am
not totally sure that there is a duty to serve you on such a thing, but I filed a
Motion for Continuance and a Motion for Appointment of Counsel
sometime within about the last 10 days, I would say. I believe I attempted to
copy you on it, but have recently been evicted and its been a very difficult
time in terms of coordinating paperwork, etc., etc. I apologize for any
inconvenience this may have cause you. I am unsure of whether the
November 14th trial is still set to take place. I believe fairness dictates that it
be continued to a later date. I have request counsel but have yet to receive
any, or wait, I was denied a request to receive counsel because J udge Howard
said there is not a 6th amendment right to counsel where, even though jail
time is technically a possibility, the state does not anticipate seeking jail
time...or something like that, however, I found some cases that say I should
still get counsel appointed, especially where I show I am indigent, and I
believe I qualify as indigent rather easily. Can and would you agree to a
continuance? I believe I tried to contact about this prior to filing my Request
for a Continuance. I maintain my innocence in this case and feel any sort of
conviction, especially one involving any sort of theft based charge, would
work a terrible injustice and greatly damage my reputation and employment
prospects. I want a jury trial, too.

Ms. Roberts,
Thanks for your reply. Please ascertain from Walmart whether any Walmart
employees had, previous to this incident, made any threats respecting
maliciously having the accused banned from Walmart's incident to a
disagreement over Walmart staff and managers curious practice of
"forgetting" their return policy, despite some individuals having worked there
over 10 years....Further, I believe it relevant and part of your duty to provide
exculpatory information to ascertain whether the RSIC police officer made
statements wherein he attempted to coerce a consent to an impermissible
search and further buttressed his probable cause finding to conduct a search
incident to arrest, expressly, in words, to the accused, upon the accused's
failure to consent to such a search.

Please provide a list of any witnesses you intend to call at trial, including a
summation of the matters the will testify to, in addition to producing a copy
or making available for reproduction any documentation, audio, video, or
other materials intended to be used in any way at trial.

Dear J udge Howard Deputy City Attorney Roberts,

I have been evicted and perhaps subject to an illegal lockout and unlawful
rent distraint by an attorney representing my Beverly Hills High School
graduate California Neurosurgeon landlord, who has spent approx $30,000 in
attorneys fees pursuing a summary eviction, and whose attorney is
withholding my state issued indentification, wallet, and all materials
necessary to my law practice all in an unlawful rent distraint prohibited by
NRS 40.460 and 40.520. I am pursuing a continuance of the upcoming
hearing/trial, I cannot even access when that hearing is. I have informed
opposing counsel Roberts of some of the issues which will require extensive
discovery, a jury trial, and more time to afford myself a legitimate
opportunity to defend this case. I have not been served any Order responding
to my request for appointment of counsel, as I believe it is required even if
the State does not "intend" to seek jail time, where any incarceration is a
possibility, the Sixth Amendment guarantees it.

Please note that my temporary address for now is:
Zach Coughlin, Esq.
c/o Silver Dollar Motel
817 N. Virginia St., Unit #2
Reno, NV 89501

The opposing counsel in the summary eviction matter is withholding my
phone as well and refusing to allow me to access any mail that may remain at
the property from those times when the USPS was processing my official
Change of Address. Email is the best way to get in contact with me during
this transition period.

For instance, I am unware whether my Motion for Appointment of Counsel
was granted or not. I called J udge Howard's assistant and requested that she
email me the docket in this case and any pleadings or orders filed, including
any order that may have stemmed form any of my previous motions, as I am
not sure how those were ruled on. I believe my internet based fax service
will allow me to receive those materials at my number 949 667 7402, though
I would prefer email, but I know many governmental entities prefer to fax
such items. I am requesting a jury trial, a substantial continuance, and the
appointment of counsel. I object to the RMC's practice of refusing to tell
litigants who the 4 "house" appointed defenders are upon questioning.
Further, it has become clear that some of these "former prosecutors" who are
now the gang of four "house" defenders, do not even announce to accused
arraignees that they are, in fact, the defender or an attorney or that they may
be representing the arraignees. I am hereby filing a motion in limine
regarding any materials or information gleaned from the unlawful search by
the RSIC Officer, who clearly announced that they would base their probable
cause to arrest and conduct a search incident to arrest upon any failure to
consent to a search by the accused. Further, the alleged conduct did not
occur in the Officer's presence, and I believe there exists authority preventing
a minor misdemeanor arrest and transport under those circumstances.
Additionally, more time is needed to conduct discovery in this matter,
especially in light of allegations that Walmart had previously threatened
individuals, including, perhaps, the accused, with retaliatory action, including
illicit abuse of process, for the purported attempts by someone to have the

Walmart Return Policy enforced, and to hold accountable all Walmart
employees and managers, some of whom have over a decade experience in
their positions, who curiously "forget" they Return Policy Walmart holds out
to the public when it is convenient to do so, the same Return Policy that
Walmart used to drive out of business so many competitors. Further, this
case is likely to get extremely complicated given the apparent conflict of
interest stemming from the fact that the Walmart in question is on land
owned by the RSIC, which may own or employ the RSIC police, and which
is rented or owned in part by Walmart.

I know Opposing Counsel Roberts may appreciate a continuance as well and
the opportunity it would afford her to fulfill her NRCP 11 duty and other
prosecutorial duties to conduct a reasonably diligent inquiry into these
matters.

Sincerely,
Zach Coughlin

Mr. Coughlin, we were closed on Friday and I have just read your email. I f you have not received confirmation
from the Court that your trial date has been continued, you will need to appear this afternoon at 1:00 pm in
Courtroom B of the Reno Municipal Court. We can discuss your case further at that time and if we are unable to
resolve the case, you can ask the Court again for a continuance and I won't object. However, it is the Court's
decision to grant your motion to continue.

It is also the Court's decision whether to appoint you a legal defender. I do not plan to ask for jail time, so the
Court is not required to appoint you an attorney. In addition, you have no right to a jury trial in a misdemeanor
case.

I hope your housing situation improves. See you this afternoon. Pam Roberts, Deputy City Attorney.

Dear Counselor Roberts,
I believe you are the prosecutor for the case against me, State v. Coughlin,
which I believe is still set for trial on November 14th, I think at 1pm. I am
not totally sure that there is a duty to serve you on such a thing, but I filed a
Motion for Continuance and a Motion for Appointment of Counsel
sometime within about the last 10 days, I would say. I believe I attempted
to copy you on it, but have recently been evicted and its been a very
difficult time in terms of coordinating paperwork, etc., etc. I apologize for
any inconvenience this may have cause you. I am unsure of whether the
November 14th trial is still set to take place. I believe fairness dictates that
it be continued to a later date. I have request counsel but have yet to receive
any, or wait, I was denied a request to receive counsel because J udge
Howard said there is not a 6th amendment right to counsel where, even
though jail time is technically a possibility, the state does not anticipate
seeking jail time...or something like that, however, I found some cases that
say I should still get counsel appointed, especially where I show I am
indigent, and I believe I qualify as indigent rather easily. Can and would
you agree to a continuance? I believe I tried to contact about this prior to
filing my Request for a Continuance. I maintain my innocence in this case
and feel any sort of conviction, especially one involving any sort of theft
based charge, would work a terrible injustice and greatly damage my
reputation and employment prospects. I want a jury trial, too.

Dear Ms. Roberts,

The opposing attorney in the Summary Eviction Proceeding against me in my home law office/business is
asserting a lien against my office, law practice files, and materials necessary to discovery production and
defending the case that you are the prosecutor on. I believe a continuance is absolutely necessary in the
interests of justice. Additionaly, you have been informed that Walmart previous to the arrest in this matter
became upset at the accused and made threats of malicious prosecution and abuse of process incident to the
accused questioning various Wal-mart personnel and managers about Wal-Marts curious practice of remixing
and forgetting the Return Policy stated in writing at Walmart.com (and expressly made applicable to purchases
made in Wal-Mart stores). A manager named "Ellis", though who may have identified himself as "John" and a
Loss prevention associate at the West 7th Street Wal-Mart in Reno allegedly told the accused that they would
have him banned from all Wal-Marts in retaliation for the accused seeking to do something to which he was
legally entitled to do, return and item at a Wal-Mart stores in accordance with Wal-Mart's stated and written
Return Policy. There are other retaliatory aspects to the conducts and statements made by both Wal-Mart and
RSIC personnel in this case.

Additionally, the video "evidence" that you provided is shameful. It consists of two short clips in some Wal-Mart
back room where 5-6 people, including 2 RSIC officers acting under color of state law on land their employer
owns and leases to Wal-Mart attempt to coerce not only a confession, but a consent to search. There is no audio
of the video, at least not the video you provided, that is. Where is the video of the alleged acts? How you can
maintain a case such as this stemming from the accused acts in a store like Wal-Mart, that has hundreds of
cameras and only provide video from some backroom that proves nothing and, in the words of "Jeannie" the
contact person at your office "doesn't show anything", I am not sure, and whether that is violative of your duties
as a prosecutor, Nifong, NRCP 11 (see Schumacher's application of that civil rule to the DA) is not clear. You
have been informed that the RSIC officer committed police misconduct and yet you brazenly announce in writing
that you do not intend to follow up on that, nor do you feel compelled to.

Thanks for your reply. Please ascertain from Walmart whether any

respecting maliciously having the accused banned from Walmart's
incident to a disagreement over Walmart staff and managers curious
practice of "forgetting" their return policy, despite some individuals
having worked there over 10 years....Further, I believe it relevant and
part of your duty to provide exculpatory information to ascertain whether
the RSIC police officer made statements wherein he attempted to coerce

Dear J udge Howard,

My apologies Your Honor. I have had an unlawful rent distraint applied to all
my office equipment and the files necessary to defend this case and produce
motions, incident to a summary eviction stemming from a lease that was at
least in part commercial, had a rent escrow deposit forced upon me in
violation of Nevada Law, had all my computers printers, everything subject
to the distraint. I have a netbook it won't accept a printer and on and on. I
apologize. I do note that the RMC rules allow for filing by facsimile, though
I gather not to the fax number listed for yoru chambers at www.nvbar.org.

admitting he couldn't hear what was said between the accused and the
cashier, in combination with the "same UPC, hit the quanity number" practice

that "he didn't have enough EVIDENCE to issue a citation so he arrested and
did a search incident to arrest" before you and Judge Howard could jump in

sat around joking like goofy frat boys the preceeding 30 minutes in the
hallway in front of the court room, like a group of 3 buddies who hang out all
the time, except, 2 get paid by you, and one gets paid by Wal-Mart, who pay
the people who pay you. Then all three of them wait around the hear the
verdict at 8 pm hours after Frontino and Crawford finished testifying.
Maybe the don't realize Judge Howard wasn't ruling on the Appeal, the Rule

false imprisonment lawsuits, etc. Fix it now while you can. Wait till I get the

Dear Ms. Roberts,

In the discovery you provided in this matter there is a fax from the RSIC to
you that has a fax heading for what appears to be "page 1" followed by pages
without that heading...then a heading with "page 4" etc... I want the entire
contents of anything provided by the RSIC and Walmart to you or anyone
connected with the Reno City Attorney or the Reno Municipal Court.
Further, I want all media provided by Walmart, and I question why you
needed 45 minutes with the three witness who testified at the November 30th,
2011 trial, from 1pm to 1:45pm. Additionally, you are hereby served a
NRCP 11 motion requiring you to correct the perjury you suborned in court
with respect to the patently contradictory testimony of Officer Crawford vis a
vis the video evidence you yourself provided in discovery.

Further, I spoke with Mr. Hazlett-Stevens shortly after the September 9, 2011
arrest in this matter demanding a copy of all documentation or discovery that
I had any right to. I was told I would not have any opportunity to review
such materials prior to the arraignment, which was not set for a full 30 days

out from the arrest. Do I not have a right to a copy of the pc sheet, arrest
report, and witness statements within 48 hours of the arrest? The fax to your
office from the RSIC is dated 9/12/2011, yet my written demands and
requests for such discovery and documentation were met with refusals to
provide such materials, and, in some case, claims that your office did not
even have such materials and would not get them until after the arraignment.
Further, I spoke with and provided written requests to RSIC Sargent
Avansino within 2 days after the arrest and he refused to provide the
materials, as did the Reno Municipal Court. Please alert the court to any
wrongdoing on your's or the Reno City Attorney or the RSIC part in this
regard in prejudicing my ability to defend my case by delaying the
production of essential discovery, then refusing to agree to a continuance at
trial, after earlier providing a written agreement to such a continuance.

Mr. Hazlett-Stevens,

We did definately talk on the phone regarding the matter to which I do not
have representation, the RSIC arrest case 11 DR 22176 2I for which Deputy
City Attorney Pam Roberts is the prosecutor. I was denied my Sixth
Amendment right to court appointed defense counsel in that matter, and
represented myself. As such, there is no rule precluded you from
communicating with me about 11 DR 22176 2I. You did speak with me
about that. I called you within a couple days of the September 9th, 2011
arrest in that matter describing my exigent desire to obtain a copy of the
discovery. I was transferred to you and we spoke at length about it, you
describing why you could not give it to me. Is it your contention that your
office or the State does not have a duty to provide the defendant a copy of
certain pieces of discovery within 48 hours of arrest?

Regarding the matter for which Mr. Puentes took the baton from Mr. Taitel, is
it clear to you how Mr. Taitel was somehow, apparently, able to assent to a
continuance, only to, apparently, find some need to pass the baton to Mr.
Puentes very, very shortly thereafter? Why did Mr. Taitel's status as attorney
of record change? Was it due to a conflict? Why didn't that conflict prevent
Mr. Taitel from abstaining from assenting to the continuance in the trespass
case, which was scheduled for trial December 13, 2011?

Dear Mr. Hazlett-Stevens,

I am writing to request a copy of any and all discovery, pleadings, documentation,
correspondences, or media in any way connected to the trespass case against me for which
Lew Taitel was apparently my court appointed attorney, but whom no longer is. Further, I
wish to be copied on everything past and present in any way related to this matter until
and after I procure another attorney. I did not agree to the continuance you sought, nor
was I informed you were seeking it. I find it particularly troubling that a continuance was
granted in the trespass case to the same man who is applying an unlawful rent distraint on
both my client files, personal property, AND THE EXCLUPATING EVIDENCE I NEED
TO DEFEND MYSELF IN THE PETIT LARCENY CASE FOR WHICH I DETAIL THE
COMPLAINTS I HAVE AGAINST YOU AND YOUR OFFICE'S HANDLING
BELOW. NO CONTINUANCE WAS GRANTED OR AGREED TO AT TRIAL BY
THE RMC OR MS. ROBERTS, PERHAPS SHE WAS TOO BUSY ALLEGEDLY
SUBORNING THE PERJ URY OF RSIC OFFICER KAMERON CRAWFORD.

In the discovery your office provided in the petit larceny matter Ms. Roberts prosecuted
against me there is a fax from the RSIC to you that has a fax heading for what appears to
be "page 1" followed by pages without that heading...then a heading with "page 4" etc... I
want the entire contents of anything provided by the RSIC and Walmart to you or anyone
connected with the Reno City Attorney or the Reno Municipal Court. Further, I want all
media provided by Walmart, and I question why you needed 45 minutes with the three
witness who testified at the November 30th, 2011 trial, from 1pm to 1:45pm.
Additionally, you are hereby served a NRCP 11 motion requiring you to correct the
perjury you suborned in court with respect to the patently contradictory testimony of
Officer Crawford vis a vis the video evidence you yourself provided in discovery.

Further, I spoke with you, Mr. Hazlett-Stevens, shortly after the September 9, 2011 arrest
in this matter demanding a copy of all documentation or discovery that I had any right to.
I was told I would not have any opportunity to review such materials prior to the
arraignment, which was not set for a full 30 days out from the arrest. Do I not have a
right to a copy of the pc sheet, arrest report, and witness statements within 48 hours of the

Here is service of the Motion for a New Trial, Set Aside, Va
arrest? The fax to your office from the RSIC is dated 9/12/2011, yet my written demands
and requests for such discovery and documentation were met with refusals to provide such
materials, and, in some case, claims that your office did not even have such materials and
would not get them until after the arraignment. Further, I spoke with and provided written
requests to RSIC Sargent Avansino within 2 days after the arrest and he refused to provide
the materials, as did the Reno Municipal Court. Please alert the court to any wrongdoing
on your's or the Reno City Attorney or the RSIC part in this regard in prejudicing my
ability to defend my case by delaying the production of essential discovery, then refusing
to agree to a continuance at trial, after earlier providing a written agreement to such a
continuance.

Is it about time for you to get that CD/DVD that Walmar'ts AP guy Faustino
handed the two Reno Sparks Indian Colony officers when they were leading
the suspect away in cuffs...not the video you gave me of sling blade
badgering the lawyer I got those two videos you gave me which just the
badgering in the interrogation room. I am talking about the cd/dvd that
Walmart's guy gave them as they were walking out....Doesn't it seem like you
really need to get that now, to stay on the right side of Nifong? You
remember Nifong, don't you. Walmart ap guy sit there on the stand, under
penalty of perjury and testify that no video was collected in any way related
to me or this case aside from the 2 interrogation room videos you provided
(with a highly suspect 14mb "codec" program required to view the
videos....can you indicate why that is necessary to watch a simple old .avi
file?).
why did you suborn the perjury of both the walmart guy and the officers
regarding no other video existing? I can't figure that one out. Ms. Roberts,
don't you practice in RMC quite a bit? Maybe I am confused, but doesn't the
RMC rules permit serving a government attorney such as yourself via email?
What do you have against email? It is economical for those of use who don't
have such public largesse to work with. Here is service of the Motion for a
New Trial, Set Aside, Vacate, etc., etc:

Dear Mr. Fisk,
I really need a copy of the audio of the Trial in 11 CR 22176 and a copy of
both the Contempt Order and the Guilty Verdict (Veronica said she would fax
one and that the RMC never sent or served me a paper copy beyond shoving
some papers in my fax when I was being handcuffed then taking them away
from me separately in a huff when I stated that I might like to know what it
was I was to sign or read it (or 6th Amendment, etc). However, I have
received no fax of those Orders as Veronica said she would send me
yesterday. She said it in an angry unprofessional tone and I am hereby
complaining in writing about that and Marshall Monte's angry threatening
tone and language to me at the arraingment of October 11, 2011. Please
place a copy of this in their personnel files and the record in both of my CR
RMC cases.
I was told by a RMC filing office counter clerk yesterday that I was not
allowed to get a copy of the audio of my 11 30, 2011 hearing before J udge
Howard, that I would only be able to get a transcript after using the one
transcriptionist the RMC approves of and after paying her a substantial
amount of money up front, but that ultimately, the audio would never be
made available to me.
Is this the case? Please respond in writing or email me a copy of the audio
files and the pdf's or whatever file type the Contempt Order and Guilty
Verdict etc, in 11 CR 22176 are in, in addition please provide the Motion to
Withdraw and Notice of appearance in 11 CR 22185 by Taitel and then
Puentes. I sent you the video exhibits with the same mysterious Verint codec
that the RMC provided me. Why a simple .avi file needs some mysterious

Judge Howard informed me during his oral pronounce of his Contempt Order and Guilty Verdict on 11 30,2011
that he would afford me an additional 3 non judicial days to file a Notice of Appeal or any other Motion, Request
for Reconsideration, or other Motion seeking relief from his 11 30 2011 rulings on account of his sua sponte, with
no possibility of Stay or prior judicial review ordering his Marshalls to slam be into handcuffs and throw me into
Jail, kind of like in Houston v. 8th Judicial District Court, escept Judge Howard didn't cool down like Judge
Pomeranz did and Houston wasn't defending a criminal charge that carred a possibility of incarceration of
substantial length after being denied his 6th Amendment Right to Counsel. I am formally complaining about
Judge Howard;s conduct in that regard, please place a copy of this in his personnel file and let me know whether
you think a Complaint to the Judicial Discipline Commission would be appropriate, in your professional opinion.
I filed my Notice of Appeal in 11 cr 22176 yesterday with the RMC via email, as previously given permission to do

Motion for NewTrial,Noticeof appeal andother issues
Dear RMC,

I do not mean to be disrespectful in contacting the court via email. I have been so stamped
out by the events of the last few months that its all I can do to try to protect my rights to get
information and media to the court in my attempts to access justice. Veronica Lopez told me on
the phone on Monday of this week that she would fax me a copy of the Order and Contempt finding from the 11
30, 2011 Trial, yet I have not received any such fax. I have not received any order in any form, not on my release
from the 3 days summary incarceration, not ever. The RMC confirmed there has been no Notice of Entry of any
order in their docket or anything, etc.

I believe the following should be added to record and presents a strong argument for a
conflict of interest or other 60(b) basis for setting aside the verdict and contempt Order in
RMC 11 CR 22176 2I. I did not plead guilty in that case, and any RMC record that
suggests that is completely inaccurate. Please let me know if your records indicate I plead
guilty in that matter. Further, I have never been provided a copy of the Guilty Verdict/Order
in this matter, I requested on to be emailed to me and sent in the USPS mail. Please serve
me a copy of the order, preferably by email and USPS mail. Further, the "RMC's official
court transcriptionist" informed me yesterday that she could not quote me or accept an
money from me for the transcript on appeal. Further I have been told by court staff that I
would never be provided access to the audio recording of the Trial of 11 30, 2011. I believe
I have a right to it, and need it on an exigent basis in connection with the various motions I
have, will, or intend to to file challenging the decision in this case. The RMC filing office
informed me there has been no Notice of Entry of Order in this matter at this point.

Unbelievable. The idea that exculpating evidence is being withheld under some "lien" is transmitted into the
universe, next thing I know, my law office is broken in to and the Richard B. Hill gang is stil asserting a lien on
property that was stolen, in my opinion, as a result of their own negligence, leaving a window air conditioner unit
in a window, without even putting a window jam between the top of the sill and lower pain, facing a sidewalk a
block from the Lakemill Lodge and across from City Center Apartments, great. Great. And I still have not been
faxed or appropriately served the Order and Contempt Order I was told would be faxed to me.

Dear Mr. Baker,
I drove by the property recently and saw you had added boarding up the front door on very, very recently.
Unfortunately, your client and your firm, despite billing up some $1,060 for "securing" the property on top of
charging $900 for storage for what could fit inside a 10x20 foot storage shed, never once providing an inventory,
and contributing to a wrongful arrest and defamation causing me and my clients great damage, failed to take
even basic steps to secure the property, despite my making numerous written requests that you do so, including,
but not limited to, taking the damn window unit air conditioner out of the window facing the sidewalk on the
side of the house very close to the damn Lakemill Lodge, or even putting a strong stick in between the bottom
sliding window pain and the top of the sill to prevent someone from simply pushing in the window unit air

conditioner and pushing the window up to gain access. Further, a blanket that was on the orange circular couch
is clearly in the flower bed in front of the house. Additionally, there are reports that someone with your office
gave someone a mattress from the inventory of Coughlin Memory Foam (a Nevada licensed business located at
the property) and an expensive mattress platform has clearly been damaged and placed in the flower bed as
well, in addition to one of the wooden porch shades being removed from the front porch. You and your client
are, of course, liable for all of this.

The River Rock property has been broken into. We believe the break-in occurred sometime on Monday,
December 12, 2011. There appear to be items missing, including the TV in the living room, perhaps a computer
monitor, and perhaps some stereo equipment. I cant tell what else. The contents of the residence appear to
have been rifled through.

I am providing you with this information as a courtesy. This email does NOT constitute permission for you to go
to the River Rock property.

Dear RMC,
It is my understanding the Judge Howard's order regarding email does not extend to the
address to which I am sending this correspondence: renomunirecords@reno.gov which is
the email address filing office supervisor Donna Ballard indicated to me was acceptable for
sending correspondence and filings to the RMC in lieu of faxes. I am writing because the
email address I was provided for RMC "official transcriptionist" Pam Longoni yielded a
"return to sender/failed transmission" message when I wrote to the email address provided
for her: plongoni@charter.net. Further, please see the forwarded email below that I sent to
Ms. Longoni. I have not received a return call from her regarding my recent messages to
her. I was told by a RMC filing office counter employee that I must get the transcript
through Ms. Longoni, as she is the "official transcriptionist" for the RMC. Please confirm
that I am no able to have another certified court reporter or transcriptionist create the
official transcript and indicate by what date this must be done, how it must be done, etc.

I was told by RMC filing office staff, including Ms. Ballard, that the RMC would not accept
any filings fees, bonds, or any other payments from me in relation to the underlying case 11
CR22176 2I or the appeal of that matter given that the RMC was holding the bail money I
paid into the court. If this is not the case or if I must pay anything into the RMC to ensure
that my appeal goes forward, please indicate as much in writing and with particularity. If I
am able to use any other transcriptionists and or the RMC has a list of such with contact
information, please provide such in writing.

Sincerely,

SOCIAL SECUIUTY N\lM8U
On 09/0912011 at about 8:45 PM I noticed a male cust er who I had previous encounters with who we had
followed for suspicious activities in the past As I foHo ed him aroWld the store he made his way back and forth
across the store. He selected various items such as and cough medicine and some various other food
items. He opened two packages of cough drops and co aled the contents inside his pockets. He then threw the
packaging to the cough drops in two different garbage in the store. One in the candy aisle and one in the
soda aisle. He also selected a chocolate bar which he p ceeded to open and eat throughout the store. When he
was finished shopping he went to register 17 and paid the rest of the merchandise that he had selected. He
did not however make any attempt to pay for the choco te bar and cough drops he had selected, He concealed
the wrapper to the candy in the cart and covered it with itizer wipes. He then exited the facility via thc
grocery doors. Once completely outside the facility I ap oached him with Stanley Cunningham and identified
myself as Walmart asset protection and infomled him t I needed him to reenter the facility so that we would
be able to complete our investigation. He was complian at this time and foJlowed us to the office. At this time
became non compliant. The police arrived on scene and ook over the investigation. When asked by the officers
if he would consent to a pat down he complied. Also a r he was placed under arrest by the officer his
belongings were emptied from his pants pockets and we ere also able to recover some of the cough drops that
he had concealed on his person. He then became very n compliant with the officers questioning. He was
arrested and removed from our facility. He was also tres assed at this time from all Walmart facilities. Video
evidence will also be compiled.

NOTE: THIS IS THE RECEIPT FOR THE ITEMS THAT WERE RUNG UP AND FOR WHICH MONEY WAS PAID. WAL-
MART'S THOMAS FRONTINO AND RSIC OFFICER CRAWFORD LIED WHEN THEY BOTH TESTIFIED THAT THEY VERIFIED
THAT THE UPC FOR THE "COUGH DROPS" ON THE RECEIPT ON THE PAGE ABOVE THIS ONE DID NOT APPEAR ON
THE RECEIPT FOUND BELOW). HOWEVER, CLEARLY THAT SAME UPC APPEARS ON BOTH RECEIPTS (THE UPC IS
0732211630093). FRONTINO EVEN TRIED TO TESTIFY THAT HE WAS ABLE TO DISCERN FROM APPROXIMATELY 50
FEET AWAY THAT HE COULD TELL EXACTLY WHAT ITEMS AND WHAT UPC'S WERE BEING RUNG UP AT THE REGISTER
AND THAT HE WAS ABLE TO VERIFY THAT THE UPC'S FOR THE COUGH DROPS ON THE "STOLEN" RECEIPT" WERE
NOT FOUND ON THE "PURCHASED" RECEIPT. HOWEVER, CLEARLY, FRONTINO WAS WRONG OR LYING, OR BOTH.

21 Points and Authorities, the Declaration of Pamela G. Roberts, attached hereto as Exhibit 1 and

23 POINTS AND AUTHORITIES
24 On January 19,2012, the Respondent filed a Motion to Dismiss Appeal. On January 30,
25 2012, the Appellant filed his Opposition to Motion to Dismiss Appeal. Pursuant to D.C.R 13 (4),

4,2012) falls upon a non-judicial day (in this case, Saturday), the reply may be filed on the next
judicial day, which is in this case is Monday, February 6, 2012.
The basis of the City's Motion to Dismiss Appeal is limited to one issue, whether or not
the Appellant filed a timely notice of appeal. In his Opposition to Motion to Dismiss Appeal,
Appellant argues that Judge Howard extended the time for him to file his notice to appeal
because Appellant would be in custody for three days due to the Court sentencing Appellant to
three days jail after a finding of Contempt. In support of this argument, Appellant quotes an
excerpt from the audio CD of the trial proceedings, supported by his own declaration that this
excerpt represents a completely true and accurate transcription made from and Audio CD which
he purchased from the Reno Municipal Court. Unfortunately, Appellant has not provided the
District Court or Respondent with a copy of the audio CD and no one can confirm or refute the
accuracy of this excerpt. Exhibit 1, Declaration of Pamela G. Roberts. However, assuming the
excerpt is true and accurate, the Reno Municipal Court does not have the authority to extend the
time to file a notice of appeal. The timely filing of a notice of appeal is jurisdictional and is an
essential prerequisite to the perfection of an appeal. Scherer v. State, 89 Nev. 372, 513 P.2d 1232
(1973). The Nevada Supreme Court has consistently held that the timely filing of a notice of
appeal is jurisdictional. State v Sant, 110 Nev. 748, 877 P. 2
nd
545 (1994) (citing Lozada v.
State, 110 Nev. 349, 871 P.2d 944 (1994); Rust v. Clark Cty. School District, 103 Nev. 686,747
P.2d 1380 (1987); Scherer v. State, 89 Nev. 372, 513 P.2d 1232 (1973). In United States v.
Robinson, 361 U.S. 220, 30 S.Ct. 282, (1959), the U.S. Supreme Court held that an appeal from
a judgment of conviction must be filed within the time fixed by the Federal Rules of Criminal
Procedure and held that the 10-day period is mandatory and jurisdictional. In this case, because
the notice of appeal is from the Reno Municipal Court to the District Court, NRS 189.010
proscribes the applicable time to file an appeal- 10 days. See Reno Municipal Code 2.16.070.
The Record on Appeal clearly shows that the written judgment of conviction was signed
by Judge Howard on November 30, 2011 and filed on that same date. See Exhibit lA, a copy of
the Judgment of Conviction. In addition, where the Appellant was instructed to sign
acknowledgment of receiving the written order, it is noted that he refused. See Exhibit 1A.

Furthermore, the Record on Appeal clearly shows that the Notice of Appeal was filed and
received by the Reno Municipal Court on December 13,2011. Exhibit 1B, a copy of the Notice
of Appeal filed by Appellant without his attachments.
In his Opposition to Motion to Dismiss, Appellant makes numerous allegations regarding
the conduct of many people, including but not limited to, the Honorable Kenneth Howard, the
Reno Municipal Court staff, Walmart employees, Reno Sparks Indian Colony Officers, the
prosecutor at the petit larceny trial. He also attached nurmerous exhibits that are irrelevant to the
issue of whether the notice of appeal was timely filed. Pursuant to NRAP 28 0), this Honorable
Court should disregard and strike all "burdensome, irrelevant, immaterial and/or scandalous
matters" contained in Appellant's pleadings. The Respondant will not address them further.
Finally, on February 1, 2012, the Appellant filed a "Supplement to Motion to Dismiss"
without requesting leave from the Court to do so. Accordingly, the Respondent respectfully
requests the Court disregard the Supplement in its entirety and order the Appellant to provide the
Respondent with a copy of the audio CD that is referred to his Opposition.
CONCLUSION
Based upon the foregoing, the Respondent requests the appeal be dismissed as the notice
of appeal was not timely filed, that this failure is jurisdictional and neither the Reno Municipal
Court nor this Honorable Court has the authority to extend the ten (10) period.
The undersigned attorney certifies that a copy of this Reply has been mailed to all
counsel of record.
Respectfully submitted this 6-11, day of February, 2012.

RULE 60. RELIEF FROM JUDGMENT OR ORDER
(a) Clerical Mistakes. Clerical mistakes in judgments, orders or other parts of the record and errors therein arising from
oversight or omission may be corrected by the court at any time of its own initiative or on the motion of any party and
after such notice, if any, as the court orders. During the pendency of an appeal, such mistakes may be so corrected before
the appeal is docketed in the appellate court, and thereafter while the appeal is pending may be so corrected with leave of
the appellate court
(b) Mistakes; Inadvertence; Excusable Neglect; Newly Discovered Evidence; Fraud, Etc. On motion and upon such
terms as are just, the court may relieve a party or party's legal representative from a fmal judgment, order, or proceeding
for the following reasons: (1) mistake, inadvertence, surprise, or excusable neglect; (2) newly discovered evidence which
by due diligence could not have been discovered in time to move for a new trial under Rule S9(b); (3) fraud (whether
heretofore denominated intrinsic or extrinsic), misrepresentation or other misconduct of an adverse party; (4) the
. udgment is void; or, (5) the judgment bas been satisfied, released, or discharged, or a prior judgment upon which it is
based has been reversed or otherwise vacated, or it is no longer equitable that an injunction should have prospective
application. The motion shall be made within a reasonable time, and for reasons (I), (2), and (3) not more than 6 months
after the proceeding was taken or the date that written notice of entry of the judgment or order was served. A motion
under this subdivision (b) does not affect the fmality of a judgment or suspend its operation. This rule does not limit the
power of a court to entertain an independent action to relieve a party from a judgment, order, or proceeding, or to set
aside a judgment for fraud upon the court Writs of coram nobis, coram vobis, audita querela, and bills of review and bills
in the nature of a bill of review, are abolished, and the procedure for obtaining any relief from a judgment shall be by
motion as prescribed in these rules or by an independent action.
(c) Default Judgments: Defendant Not Personally Served. When a default judgment shall have been taken against any
party who was not personally seIVed with summons and complaint, either in the State of Nevada or in any other
urisdiction, and who has not entered a general appearance in the action, the court, after notice to the adverse party, upon
motion made within 6 months after the date of service of written notice of entry of such judgment, may vacate such
. udgment and allow the party or the party's legal representatives to answer to the merits of the original action. When,
however, a party has been personally seIVed with summons and complaint, either in the State of Nevada or in any other
urisdiction, the party must make application to be relieved from a default, a judgment, an order, or other proceeding
taken against the party, or for permission to fIle an answer, in accordance with the provisions of subdivision (b) of this
rule.
(d) Default Judgments: Modification Nunc Pro Tunc. \Vhenever a default judgment or decree has been entered, the
party or parties in default therein may at any time thereafter, upon written consent of the party or parties in whose favor
udgment or decree has been entered, enter general appearance in the action, and the general appearance so entered shall
have the same force and effect as if entered at the proper time prior to the rendition of the judgment or decree. On such
appearance being entered the court may make and enter a modified judgment or decree to the extent only of showing such
general appearance on the part of the party or parties in default, and it shall be entered nunc pro tunc as of the date of the
original judgment or decree; provided, however, that nothing herein contained shall prevent the court from modifying
such judgment or decree as stipulated and agreed in writing by the parties to such action, and in accordance with the term
of such written stipUlation and agreement.
RULE 62. STAY OF PROCEEDINGS TO EN""FORCE A TLIDGlvffiNT
(3) Automatic Stay. Except as stated herein, no execution shall issue upon a judgment nor shall proceedings be taken for
its enforcement until the expiration of 10 days after service ofwTitten notice of its entry.
(b) Stay on Motion for New Trial or for Judgment In its discretion fu"1d on such conditions for the security of the
adverse party as are p.roper, the court may st.ay the execution of or any proceedings to en.force ajudgment pending the
disposition of a motion for a new tt-ial or to alter or amend a judgment made pursuant to Rule 59, or of a motion for relief
from a judgment or order made pursuant to Rule 60, or of a motion for judgment in accordance with a motion for a
. udgment as a matter of law made pursuant to Rule 50, or of a motion for amendment to the findings or for additional
findings made pursuant to Rule 52(b).

erroneous application of a law or regulation improper jury instructions
ineffective assistance of counselor other malpractice the evidence did not prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt
I went to the fIling office at the fu'\1C a couple times recently, including today, and sent in another written request seeking
an audio tape of the Trial in RMC 1 I CR 22176 IC 110627 RSIC but was told by a Clerk that I would need to pay for
the entire Trial to be transcribed, and only then would I be allowed to read it, and that I would not be allowed to access
the audio of the hearing? Is this correct? I need to have the audio of the Trial to fmish my Rule 59, 60, and Motion for
Reconsideration Motions ... .! will pay for the audio. I have received many audio cdldvd's from both Reno Justice Court
and Washoe District Court, and it was announced in court that the trial was being audio recorded, as such, I hope you will
afford me a copy. Today, I called the fuYlC and spoke with Veronica, wno sounded very angry with me and dismissive. I
was summarily sentenced to 3 days injail at the end of the trial in this matter, even wi1ere I had been denied my Sixth
Amendment Right To Counsel, after a Contempt committed in the court's presence fmding was announced, in addition to
a guilty verdict in the underlying action.. Veronica infoITIled me that she was at the trial and that the RMC had failed to
mail me or otherwise serve me with a copy of the written Order, either for the guilty conviction in the underlying case or
the contempt order. I was forced into handcuffs so quickly ater Judge HO\\'3fd concluded issuing his oral ruling that I was
not even able to save my notes on my computer, it was literally apparently that exigent a situation to handcuff me .... Then
a few Marshalls place some pieces of paper in front of me and demanded I sign them, fu"1d becanle angry, like Veronica
and like Ivrarshall Monte, I believe, w ~ at the arraingment, wllen I asked a simple question related to due process,
something many at the fuYrC do not seem all fr.at enamored with. I asked ifI could even read the papers they were
demanding I sign right then and there. The curtly and 10l..,dly said no, then dragged me away before I could read the
papers, much less sign them. Veronica snarled at me that that \-vas all the service of the Order of Contempt and Guilty
Verdict that I would get, but that she might fax it to me, ho,vever, no fax has arrived, despite my illustrating the
exigencies of receiving the Order in preparing my Relief From Judgrnent Motions. Veronica continue to curtly refuse to
provide me any copy of any of L'le previously filed Orders of the Court urJess I paid for them, despite my apparently not
having been provided a copy of such orders in the fIrst place. I have no idea what those papers were (they certainly were
not iTl the property given to me upon my release from jail) and have received nothing in the mail, despite updating the
RMC wit'1 my new address of: 817 N. VirgirJa St #2, Reno l\ry 89501 artd filing an official Change of Address with the
USPS shortly after I was summarily evicted (despite th.ere being only a No Cause Sununlli7 Eviction notice against my
commercial lease, sometnulg entirely probibited against under N""RS 40.253. Not only \vas I denied my Sixth Amendment

Reno City Attorney was given one by my supposed appointed counsel Lew Taitel (whom is "associated with"
( http://www.nevcs.com/attomey.htmI) an entity that I happen to be suing Nevada Comt Services, incident to the same
eviction proceeding for which Mr. T aitel did grant, and the RMC did grant, a continuance in the other RMC case against
me, the trespass action that was set for trial on December 13th, because Richard G. Hill, who I am also suing in
connection with the wrongful eviction against, was going to be on vacation and the RMC apparently found that a good
reason for a continuance, compared to the RMC feeling my being eviction on or aromd November 13th, then wrongfully
arrested in connection with the eviction, under a trespass charge, and incarcerated for a number of days, all while Richard
Hill applied an unlawful rent distraint upon many exculpatory materials that would speak to a stated and express
taliatory motive on the part ofWalmart and the RSIC, and other exculpatory materials being wrongfully withheld under
an unlawful rent distraint by Richard G. Hill, Esq., the same person Mr. Taite!., the Reno City Attorney, and the RMC
decided deserved such sanctity applied to his monthlong vacation from Thanksgiving to New Year's to grant a
continuance, with no input from me.

ANSWERING BRIEF
COMES NOW the Respondent CITY OF RENO ("City"), by and through Pamela G.
Roberts, Deputy City Attorney, and hereby files its Answering Brief as follows. This Brief is
based upon the pleadings and documents on file herein, and the points and authorities which are
set forth below and by this reference made a part hereof.
PROCEDURAL HISTORY
On September 14, 2011, a criminal complaint was filed charging Zachary Coughlin
(herein after Appellant) with Petit Larceny, a violation of Reno Municipal Code (RMC)
8.10.040. The Appellant was arraigned on October 10,,2011 and entered a not guilty plea to the
charge and the matter was set for trial on November 14,2011. On October 26, 2011, Appellant

filed an Application for Appointment of Legal, Defender and a separate motion for a new trial
date. On October 27, 2011, the Honorable Ken Howard entered an Order denying Appellant's
Application for Appointment of Legal Defender, stating that if the trial resulted in a conviction,
there would be no jail sentence imposed. The November 14, 2011 trial date was continued by
the Court and a new trial date was set for November 30, 2011. Appellant filed a new Motion for
Continuance on the date of the trial which was denied. The trial was in front of the Honorable
Ken Howard of the Reno Municipal Court and the Appellant was found guilty and a Judgment of
Conviction was entered on November 30, 2011 imposing a total fine in the amount of $400.00.
The Appellant untimely filed his Notice of Appeal of the trial court's judgment on
December 13, 2011. It should be noted that Appellant also filed in Reno Municipal Court a
Motion to Vacate and/or Set Aside, Motion for Reconsideration, Motion for Recusal and Motion
for Publication of :rranscript at Public expense, all of which were denied in an Order entered on
December 15, 2011.
This Honorable Court issued the Order for Briefing Schedule on January 5, 2012
requiring Appellant to file and serve his Opening Brief within thirty (30) days of the date of the
Order and imposing a five page limit. On January 19, 2012, Respondent filed a Motion to
Dismiss Appeal based upon Appellant's untimely filing his notice of appeal. On January 30,
2012, Appellant filed an Opposition to Motion to Dismiss Appeal. On February 1, 2012,
Appellant filed a pleading entitled "Supplement to Motion to Dismiss". On February 6, 2012,
Respondent filed a Reply in Support of Motion to Dismiss Appeal and Request for Submission.
No Order regarding the Motion to Dismiss has been filed or entered.
On February 7, 2012, Appellant filed and served his Opening Brief which exceeded the
five page limit by three pages. It should be noted that Appellant's Opening Brief was due on
February 6, 2012 because the 30
th
day fell on Saturday, February 4, 2012. On February 7, 2012,
Appellant also filed a Motion for Extension of Time to File Opening Brief. Pursuant to WCDR
11, Motions for Extension of time shall be made upon 5 days notice. Respondent did not file any
opposition to Appellant's Motion for Extension of Time and this Honorable Court has not
entered any Order extending the time for Appellant to file his Opening Brief or granting his
-2-
1 request for an exception to this the five page limit. On February 22, 2012, without leave from
2 this Honorable Court, Appellant served Respondent a Supplement to Appellant's Opening Brief.
3 Respondent hereby files its Answering Brief in accordance with this Honorable Court's
4 Scheduling Order. In Appellant's Supplement to Motion to Dismiss he references that he was

directed to supply the 2
nd
Judicial District Court and the Respondent a copy of the trial transcript
or in the alternative, a copy of the audio CD of the trial. As of February 23, 2012, the
Respondent has not received either a trial transcript or copy of the audio CD of the trial.
Accordingly, the Record on Appeal is deficient and the Appeal should be dismissed.
STATEMENT OF FACTS
The City presented testimony through Loss Prevention Officer Thomas Frontino
and Reno Sparks Indian Colony Police Officer Braunworth in support of the charge of Petit
Larceny. The Appellant zealously cross-examined each witness. Appellant called Reno Sparks
Indian Colony Police Officer Crawford to the stand in his case. There was sufficient evidence for
the trial court to find the Appellant guilty of Petit Larceny. Respondel).t is unable to cite to the
facts or testimony presented in this case as the Appellant did not provide either a trial transcript
or audio CD. However, should this Honorable Court receive and review the audio CD,
Respondent believes that the testimony of the City's witnesses provided sufficient evidence to
support the conviction.
LEGAL ARGUMENT
Appellant contends that there was insufficient evidence to convict him; the City
respectfully disagrees with that contention. The Nevada Supreme Court in Wilkins v. State, 96
Nev. 367, 609 P.2d 309 (1990) determined the standard to be used on appeal when an appellant
challenges his or her conviction based on insufficient evidence. In Wilkins at 313, the Court
states:
"In reviewing the evidence supporting ajury's verdict, the question is not whether
this Court is convinced of the defendant's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, but
whether the jury, acting reasonably, could have been convinced to that certitude
by the evidence it had a right to consider."

In the instant case, the evidence of guilt was substantial and uncontroverted. Three
witnesses testified during the trial. The evidence in the case at hand was substantial and is
sufficient to establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt as determined by a rational trier of fact.
Appellant's Opening Brief and other Motions include references to audio and video
recordings and receipts that were not admitted into evidence and are not part of the record.
Appellant's speculative arguments are unsupported by the evidence and are without merit.
CONCLUSION
Appellant has failed to timely file his notice of appeal, failed to complete the
record on appeal, failed to timely file his Opening Brief and exceeded the page limit and has
failed to comply with applicable Court Rules. For all of these reasons and the foregoing
argument set forth above, the Trial Court's finding of guilt and conviction for petit larceny
should be affirmed and the Appeal should be dismissed.
RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED on the 23nf day of February, 2012.

RULE 59. NEW TRIALS; AMENDMENT OF JUDGMENTS
(a) Grounds. A new trial may be granted to all or any oI the parties and on all or part oI the issues Ior any oI the
Iollowing causes or grounds materially aIIecting the substantial rights oI an aggrieved party: (1) Irregularity in the
proceedings oI the court, jury, master, or adverse party, or any order oI the court, or master, or abuse oI discretion by
which either party was prevented Irom having a Iair trial; (2) Misconduct oI the jury or prevailing party; (3) Accident or
surprise which ordinary prudence could not have guarded against; (4) Newly discovered evidence material Ior the party
making the motion which the party could not, with reasonable diligence, have discovered and produced at the trial; (5)
ManiIest disregard by the jury oI the instructions oI the court; (6) Excessive damages appearing to have been given under
the inIluence oI passion or prejudice; or, (7) Error in law occurring at the trial and objected to by the party making the
motion. On a motion Ior a new trial in an action tried without a jury, the court may open the judgment iI one has been
entered, take additional testimony, amend Iindings oI Iact and conclusions oI law or make new Iindings and conclusions,
and direct the entry oI a new judgment.
(b) Time for Motion. A motion Ior a new trial shall be Iiled no later than 10 days aIter service oI written notice oI the
entry oI the judgment.
(c) Time for Serving Affidavits. When a motion Ior new trial is based upon aIIidavits they shall be Iiled with the motion.
The opposing party has 10 days aIter service within which to Iile opposing aIIidavits, which period may be extended Ior
an additional period not exceeding 20 days either by the court Ior good cause shown or by the parties by written
stipulation. The court may permit reply aIIidavits.
(d) On Court`s Initiative; Notice; Specifying Grounds. No later than 10 days aIter entry oI judgment the court, on its
own, may order a new trial Ior any reason that would justiIy granting one on a party`s motion. AIter giving the parties
notice and an opportunity to be heard, the court may grant a timely motion Ior a new trial Ior a reason not stated in the
motion. When granting a new trial on its own initiative or Ior a reason not stated in a motion, the court shall speciIy the
grounds in its order.

RULE 60. RELIEF FROM JUDGMENT OR ORDER
(a) Clerical Mistakes. Clerical mistakes in judgments, orders or other parts oI the record and errors therein arising Irom
oversight or omission may be corrected by the court at any time oI its own initiative or on the motion oI any party and
aIter such notice, iI any, as the court orders. During the pendency oI an appeal, such mistakes may be so corrected beIore
the appeal is docketed in the appellate court, and thereaIter while the appeal is pending may be so corrected with leave oI
the appellate court.
(b) Mistakes; Inadvertence; Excusable Neglect; Newly Discovered Evidence; Fraud, Etc. On motion and upon such
terms as are just, the court may relieve a party or party`s legal representative Irom a Iinal judgment, order, or proceeding
Ior the Iollowing reasons: (1) mistake, inadvertence, surprise, or excusable neglect; (2) newly discovered evidence which
by due diligence could not have been discovered in time to move Ior a new trial under Rule 59(b); (3) Iraud (whether
heretoIore denominated intrinsic or extrinsic), misrepresentation or other misconduct oI an adverse party; (4) the
judgment is void; or, (5) the judgment has been satisIied, released, or discharged, or a prior judgment upon which it is
based has been reversed or otherwise vacated, or it is no longer equitable that an injunction should have prospective
application. The motion shall be made within a reasonable time, and Ior reasons (1), (2), and (3) not more than 6 months
aIter the proceeding was taken or the date that written notice oI entry oI the judgment or order was served. A motion
under this subdivision (b) does not aIIect the Iinality oI a judgment or suspend its operation. This rule does not limit the
power oI a court to entertain an independent action to relieve a party Irom a judgment, order, or proceeding, or to set
aside a judgment Ior Iraud upon the court. Writs oI coram nobis, coram vobis, audita querela, and bills oI review and bills
in the nature oI a bill oI review, are abolished, and the procedure Ior obtaining any relieI Irom a judgment shall be by
motion as prescribed in these rules or by an independent action.
(c) Default 1udgments: Defendant Not Personally Served. When a deIault judgment shall have been taken against any
party who was not personally served with summons and complaint, either in the State oI Nevada or in any other
jurisdiction, and who has not entered a general appearance in the action, the court, aIter notice to the adverse party, upon
motion made within 6 months aIter the date oI service oI written notice oI entry oI such judgment, may vacate such
judgment and allow the party or the party`s legal representatives to answer to the merits oI the original action. When,
however, a party has been personally served with summons and complaint, either in the State oI Nevada or in any other
jurisdiction, the party must make application to be relieved Irom a deIault, a judgment, an order, or other proceeding
taken against the party, or Ior permission to Iile an answer, in accordance with the provisions oI subdivision (b) oI this
rule.
(d) Default 1udgments: Modification Nunc Pro Tunc. Whenever a deIault judgment or decree has been entered, the
party or parties in deIault therein may at any time thereaIter, upon written consent oI the party or parties in whose Iavor
judgment or decree has been entered, enter general appearance in the action, and the general appearance so entered shall
have the same Iorce and eIIect as iI entered at the proper time prior to the rendition oI the judgment or decree. On such
appearance being entered the court may make and enter a modiIied judgment or decree to the extent only oI showing such
general appearance on the part oI the party or parties in deIault, and it shall be entered nunc pro tunc as oI the date oI the
original judgment or decree; provided, however, that nothing herein contained shall prevent the court Irom modiIying
such judgment or decree as stipulated and agreed in writing by the parties to such action, and in accordance with the terms
oI such written stipulation and agreement.
RULE 62. STAY OF PROCEEDINGS TO ENFORCE A JUDGMENT
(a) Automatic Stay. Except as stated herein, no execution shall issue upon a judgment nor shall proceedings be taken Ior
its enIorcement until the expiration oI 10 days aIter service oI written notice oI its entry.
(b) Stay on Motion for New Trial or for 1udgment. In its discretion and on such conditions Ior the security oI the
adverse party as are proper, the court may stay the execution oI or any proceedings to enIorce a judgment pending the
disposition oI a motion Ior a new trial or to alter or amend a judgment made pursuant to Rule 59, or oI a motion Ior relieI
Irom a judgment or order made pursuant to Rule 60, or oI a motion Ior judgment in accordance with a motion Ior a
judgment as a matter oI law made pursuant to Rule 50, or oI a motion Ior amendment to the Iindings or Ior additional
Iindings made pursuant to Rule 52(b).
(c) Reserved.
(d) Stay Upon Appeal. When an appeal is taken the appellant by giving a supersedeas bond may obtain a stay. The bond
may be given at or aIter the time oI Iiling the notice oI appeal. The stay is eIIective when the supersedeas bond is Iiled.

within the State, or an oIIicer or agency thereoI and the operation or enIorcement oI the judgment is stayed, no bond,
obligation, or other security shall be required Irom the appellant.
(f) Reserved.
(g) Power of Appellate Court Not Limited. The provisions in this rule do not limit any power oI an appellate court or oI
a judge or justice thereoI to stay proceedings during the pendency oI an appeal or to suspend, modiIy, restore, or grant an
injunction during the pendency oI an appeal or to make any order appropriate to preserve the status quo or the
eIIectiveness oI the judgment subsequently to be entered.
(h) Stay of 1udgment as to Multiple Claims or Multiple Parties. When a court has ordered a Iinal judgment under the
conditions stated in Rule 54(b), the court may stay enIorcement oI that judgment until the entering oI a subsequent
judgment or judgments and may prescribe such conditions as are necessary to secure the beneIit thereoI to the party in
whose Iavor the judgment is entered.
|As amended; eIIective July 1, 2005.|
prosecutorial misconduct (such as the D.A. withholding "exculpatory" evidence that could`ve helped your deIense)
judicial errors (such as the judge permitting evidence that should`ve been excluded or vice versa)
erroneous application oI a law or regulation improper jury instructions
ineIIective assistance oI counsel or other malpractice the evidence did not prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt
I went to the Iiling oIIice at the RMC a couple times recently, including today, and sent in another written request seeking
an audio tape oI the Trial in RMC 11 CR 22176 IC 110627 RSIC but was told by a Clerk that I would need to pay Ior
the entire Trial to be transcribed, and only then would I be allowed to read it, and that I would not be allowed to access
the audio oI the hearing? Is this correct? I need to have the audio oI the Trial to Iinish my Rule 59, 60, and Motion Ior
Reconsideration Motions....I will pay Ior the audio. I have received many audio cd/dvd's Irom both Reno Justice Court
and Washoe District Court, and it was announced in court that the trial was being audio recorded, as such, I hope you will
aIIord me a copy. Today, I called the RMC and spoke with Veronica, who sounded very angry with me and dismissive. I
was summarily sentenced to 3 days in jail at the end oI the trial in this matter, even where I had been denied my Sixth
Amendment Right To Counsel, aIter a Contempt committed in the court's presence Iinding was announced, in addition to
a guilty verdict in the underlying action. Veronica inIormed me that she was at the trial and that the RMC had Iailed to
mail me or otherwise serve me with a copy oI the written Order, either Ior the guilty conviction in the underlying case or

not even able to save my notes on my computer, it was literally apparently that exigent a situation to handcuII me....Then
a Iew Marshalls place some pieces oI paper in Iront oI me and demanded I sign them, and became angry, like Veronica
and like Marshall Monte, I believe, was at the arraingment, when I asked a simple question related to due process,
something many at the RMC do not seem all that enamored with. I asked iI I could even read the papers they were
demanding I sign right then and there. The curtly and loudly said no, then dragged me away beIore I could read the
papers, much less sign them. Veronica snarled at me that that was all the service oI the Order oI Contempt and Guilty
Verdict that I would get, but that she might Iax it to me, however, no Iax has arrived, despite my illustrating the
exigencies oI receiving the Order in preparing my RelieI From Judgment Motions. Veronica continue to curtly reIuse to
provide me any copy oI any oI the previously Iiled Orders oI the Court unless I paid Ior them, despite my apparently not
having been provided a copy oI such orders in the Iirst place. I have no idea what those papers were (they certainly were
not in the property given to me upon my release Irom jail) and have received nothing in the mail, despite updating the
RMC with my new address oI: 817 N. Virginia St. #2, Reno NV 89501 and Iiling an oIIicial Change oI Address with the

Reno City Attorney was given one by my supposed appointed counsel Lew Taitel (whom is "associated with"

eviction proceeding Ior which Mr. Taitel did grant, and the RMC did grant, a continuance in the other RMC case against
me, the trespass action that was set Ior trial on December 13th, because Richard G. Hill, who I am also suing in
connection with the wrongIul eviction against, was going to be on vacation and the RMC apparently Iound that a good
reason Ior a continuance, compared to the RMC Ieeling my being eviction on or around November 13th, then wrongIully
arrested in connection with the eviction, under a trespass charge, and incarcerated Ior a number oI days, all while Richard
Hill applied an unlawIul rent distraint upon many exculpatory materials that would speak to a stated and express
retaliatory motive on the part oI Walmart and the RSIC, and other exculpatory materials being wrongIully withheld under
an unlawIul rent distraint by Richard G. Hill, Esq., the same person Mr. Taitel, the Reno City Attorney, and the RMC

continuance, with no input Irom me.
