Defendants Wendell Coombs and Steven Westerberg are both individuals who resided in at all material times in Marion County, Oregon. 4. Venue is proper because Plaintiff and two of the three defendants live in Marion County, Oregon, the third defendant has minimum contacts in Oregon, and the events which give rise to this action happened on the third defendant’s property in Marion County, Oregon. FIRST CAUSE OF ACTION (Assault) 5. Plaintiff realleges Paragraphs 1 through 4. 6. On August 11, 2013, Defendant Coombs met Plaintiff in the entry way of the CJCLDS meetinghouse on Lone Oak Road in Salem, Oregon. Plaintiff was less than two hours early for the apostasy trial he had to demand the week before from the leaders of this meetinghouse after the official representative and agent of CJCLDS in Turner, Oregon physically removed Plaintiff from the meetinghouse in that location after Plaintiff sat in the congregation and quietly waited for the meeting to begin. 7. When Plaintiff attempted to enter the meetinghouse in Salem, Defendant Coombs grabbed Plaintiff and pinned him to the doors. After Defendant Coombs informed Plaintiff that - 2 - ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Complaint

Defendant Coombs then followed Plaintiff outside and continued to insist on the departure of Plaintiff, but never once trespassed Plaintiff. Defendant Coombs at one point made false claims about Plaintiff regarding the interaction at the meetinghouse in Turner, Oregon, the week before, and when Plaintiff tried to explain his mistake, Defendant punched Plaintiff in the face. 9. Plaintiff continued to refuse to leave early, and finally walked around to the locked doors by the parking lot a few moments before his fellow church members were scheduled to be released from their meetings. At this point, Defendant Westerberg approached Plaintiff and immediately began making accusations towards Plaintiff about his behavior while trying to help Defendant Coombs’ riling up of Plaintiff. The two Defendants were positioned in a way that obstructed Plaintiff’s view of either of the walkways converging at the door he was standing next to, so that when officer Menges began to approach Plaintiff, he was unable to see the officer as he approached. Instead of assuring that Plaintiff was aware of his presence, Officer Menges shouted to Plaintiff to “come here!” Plaintiff thought it was just another member coming to harass him, so he refused. Immediately, Defendants Coombs and Westerberg grabbed Plaintiff’s arms. One of the two defendants then quickly said, “you’re under arrest!”, and then Officer Menges’ running footsteps can be heard as he echoes the sentiment that Plaintiff is under arrest. - 3 - ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Complaint

Defendant CJCLDS and Defendant Agents Coombs and Westerberg knew that another agent of CJCLDS had physically touched Plaintiff without his consent, and should have known that having Defendants Coombs and Westerberg apprehend Plaintiff in the manner that they did would cause more unwanted touching that Plaintiff would not consent to. SECOND CAUSE OF ACTION (Battery) 11. Plaintiff realleges paragraphs 1 through 10. 12. Defendants caused Plaintiff to be touched with the intent to harm him. 13. Plaintiff did not consent to the touching. 14. As a proximate result of the acts alleged herein Plaintiff suffered harm, entitling him to damages in an amount to be proven at trial. THIRD CAUSE OF ACTION (Abuse of Process) 15. Plaintiff realleges paragraphs 1 through 14. 16. - 4 - ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Complaint

Defendant CJCLDS knew that the agents it sent to apprehend Plaintiff had law enforcement careers in their lay occupations, and used these law enforcement statuses to successfully avoid criminal charges for assaulting and battering Plaintiff, as Salem police department internal affairs refused to properly investigate or remedy the situation. 18. As a proximate result of the acts alleged herein, Plaintiff is entitled to damages in an amount to be proven at trial. PRAYER FOR RELIEF WHEREFORE, Plaintiff prays for relief and judgment as follows: Awarding compensatory and punitive damages in an amount to be proven at trial and costs.
