Appellant's Statement of the Issues:|
I. Whether the District Court committed clear error in granting custody of M.T. to Nikki Olson?
II. Whether the District Court committed clear error in setting the terms of visitation?
III. Whether the District Court erred as a matter of law in limiting the parties' time to present their case?
Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
I. Whether the District Court clearly erred in finding that Nikki acted in self defense when she slapped Cory on August 9, 1998, perforating his ear drum.
II. Whether the District Court clearly erred in finding Thompson inflicted domestic violence on Olson constituting serious bodily injury not done by Thompson in self defense, thus triggering the rebuttable presumption against Thompson.
III. Whether the District Court clearly erred in not finding that Nikki's slapping M.T. across the face and head was domestic violence that should have raised the rebuttable presumption against awarding custody to Nikki.
IV. Whether the District Court clearly erred in making no finding on Nikki calling M.T. derogatory names nor on Nikki making derogatory statements about Cory in M.T.'s presence.
V. Whether the District Court clearly erred in finding that Cory failed to present clear and convincing evidence that M.T.'s best interests require him to have custody of her.
VI. Whether, if upon review, the Supreme Court finds the rebuttable presumption has not been triggered, the best interest factors including domestic violence need to be reconsidered.
VII. Whether the case should be remanded for changes in the visitation schedule.
VIII. Whether the parties should have additional time for testimony.
