Hillygus has extensive history in family court

RENO, NV (KOLO) The guardianship case for Susan Hillygus alone is thousands and thousands of pages.

We know Reno Police examined this file after they say Roger Hillygus kidnapped his mother from the Stone Valley Alzheimer's Specialty Care Facility on August 8th.

Inside the guardianship file there are motions to have Roger's sister become the guardian of their mom.

Roger's appeals appear almost directly thereafter.

For years he claims the judge involved in his case was only there to line the pockets of attorneys.

He goes through several attorneys; some of whom go to court asking to be paid.

In 2016 Susan Hillygus became a patient at Stone Valley Alzheimer's Specialty Facility, and there was a petition filed in court to sell the Hillygus home.

That was granted by the court.

But according to court documents, Roger refused to leave the house.

So threatening to the legal guardian at the time she came to the house to document Susan's belongings, she filed a temporary protection order against Roger in July of 2016.

Hillygus appeals went to the Nevada Supreme Court.

He did not prevail.

At one point he filed a civil case in federal court naming more than 40-defendants, that case too was thrown out.

In late 2017 he was declared a "vexacious litigant."

The judge in family court said motions filed by Hillygus were frivolous, repetitive and not based in fact.

On August 9th, 2019 in Washoe District Court, a hearing was held to approve the final sale of the Hillygus home.

It was approved.

Roger was not present however, local authorities were looking for him after they say he had kidnapped his mother from the Alzheimer's facility on August 8, 2019.

Hillygus has claimed Stone Valley has no medical staff and it was unqualified to take care of his mother.

A look into inspections of the facility performed by the state shows Stone Valley received an “A” rating.

The report prior to that shows a “D” rating.

A state inspector at that time said the facility did not adequately train 3 of 12 caregivers initially or annually for a required 8 hours of instruction.
