Isaacson v. Isaacson
Erik R. Isaacson, Plaintiff and Appellant
Traci L. Isaacson, Defendant and Appellee
South Central Judicial District,
Judge Robert O. Wefald
|Nature of Action:||Child Support|
|Term:||12/2009  Argument: 12/03/2009 9:30am|
|ND cite:||2010 ND 18|
777 N.W.2d 886
Listen to recording of oral argument in MP3 format
Appellant's Statement of the Issues:|
1.The Trial Court, In Making Its Custody Determination, Deprived Plaintiff of His Due Process Rights and, Consequently, Erred in Awarding Custody to Traci.
2.The Trial Court's Valuation of the Marital Estate Was Clearly Erroneous.
Reply Brief Issues
1. The trial court's conduct in administering the trial was plain error, and is properly appealable.
2. The trial court's valuation of items in the marital estate lacked an evidentiary basis, and therefore failed to comply with applicable law.
Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
A. If the trial court divided the two-day trial in half, giving each party an equal amount of time in which to do both direct and cross-examination, was Erik deprived of due process because the judge periodically advised the parties of the amount of time remaining and Erik did not ask for more time?
B. If the parties stipulated to submit post trial briefs, and were also able to comment and reply upon errors in the court's initial draft opinion, and Erik did not ask to give a closing argument, was Erik deprived of due process because neither party gave an oral closing argument?
C. Did the court err by not characterizing breast implants as assets to be divided if they have no fair market value, and, Erik did not object nor make an offer of proof?
D. Did the court err by failing to require more information if, after Erik asked for the court to order Traci to provide information regarding the family limited partnership, she did so, but Erik did not ask for additional information nor cross-examine Traci on the issue?
