COMPLAINT FOR DEFAMATION Plaintiff, MICHAEL LAGITHEE (hereinafter "Plaintiff") by and through its attorney of record, the law firm of Adams Law Group, Ltd. , alleges and complains against Defendant JAMES HYLAND as follows: 1. Plaintiff is and was at all times relevant herein, a resident of Clark County, Nevada. 2. Upon information and belief, Defendant is and was at all times relevant herein, a resident of the State of Ohio. 3. All events as described herein took place in Clark County, State of Nevada.

On Sunday, October 5”‘, 2014, at approximately 3pm, Plaintiff attended a public two day real estate seminar for those interested in real estate investments. The location of the seminar was at the Hampton Inn on the corner of Tropicana and Dean Martin Way, Las Vegas, NV. During the presentation, the presenter, a Mr Gifford (“Gifford”) stated investors could setup their retirement accounts to invest in the purchase of properties acquired through homeowners’ association delinquent assessment auctions. Gifford stated that the Supreme Court of Nevada had recently ruled that a super priority lien held by a homeowner association extingui shes a first deed of trust on a property. Gifford stated that investors could invest a minimum of $10,000 and buy properties acquired through homeowners association lien auctions and that his company (through a “Quiet Title Process”) would be able to get clear title on the properties and in the process collect rents on the property for the investor. The example Gifford used several times was that with a $10,000 investment an investor would receive approximately $1,000 a month in rent. Gifford further stated that his company attended auctions where there were no other bidders and therefore got much better pricing than those watching his presentation could get. Gifford further went onto to say that his company would manage the entire process and encouraged any investor in the crowd to setup a 30 minute phone consultation to begin the process. At the end of the presentation Plaintiff raised his hand and asked some clarifying questions challenging some of the conclusions and recommendations made by Gifford.

Defendant Hyland, who began answering questions that Plaintiff had directed to Gifford, then stated (in front of multiple people) that Plaintiff was a convicted felon and not to believe anything he says. Plaintiff responded by saying that Defendant’s statement was not true and that Plaintiff was not a convicted felon. Regardless, Defendant continued to say that Plaintiff was a convicted felon in front of numerous investor seminar attendees at least 10 more times. In fact, Plaintiff is not a convicted felon. The statements made by Defendant were false, injurious and diminished Plaintiff’ s reputation in the community and constitute defamation per se. Therefore, on Sunday, October 5”‘, 2014, Defendant made defamatory statements (that Plaintiff is a convicted felon, when in fact he is not) published to third parties (the seminar attendees, ) injuring the reputation of Plaintiff. Defendant published the defamatory statements with actual knowledge that they were false, or with reckless disregard as to their truth or falsity, or with negligence. Defendant’s statement referred to Plaintiff by name throughout, was made of and concerning Plaintiff and was so understood by those who heard the statement that Plaintiff was a convicted felon. The entire statement is false as it pertains to Plaintiff. The statement is slanderous on its face. It clearly exposes Plaintiff to hatred, contempt, ridicule and obloquy because Plaintiff is not a convicted felon, and his livelihood depends very much upon Plaintiff’ s good name and standing. As a proximate result of the above-described statements, Plaintiff has suffered loss of to his reputation, shame, mortification, and injury to his feelings, all to his damage in excess of $10,000.00.
