II.Whether the Defendants Maki are entitled to reformation of the May 1973 Waivers of Inheritance for fraud and/or mistake.
III. Whether the Defendants Maki are entitled to reformation of the 1984 Personal Representative's Deed for fraud and/or mistake.
REPLY BRIEF ISSUES

II.Whether there are living witnesses to the negotiations of the sale terms from Marie Arndt to Richard Arndt.
III.Why the defendants Maki signed the Personal Representative if it had no mineral reservation (the trial court's query)?
IV.Whether the trial court erred as a matter of law that the defendants Maki are strangers to title, contrary to NDT Std. 2-01.
Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
Did the District Court error in its ruling as follows: Further, the Court is not persuaded that the Maki Defendants recorded the March 29, 2007 Personal Representative's Deed of Distribution for the purpose of slandering title to the minerals underlying the Arndt Family Farm . and the Plaintiffs' request for an award of attorneys' fees/damages under N.D.C.C. 47-19.1-09 is denied. (Emphasis by the District Court) (App. p 324).
Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
The district court did not err in entering Summary Judgment in favor of Plaintiffs and against Defendants, pursuant to N.D.R.Civ.P. 56 and N.D.C.C. 32-04-17 & 09-06-07, by declaring that the Defendants have no right, title, or interest in the minerals underlying the Arndt Family Farm.
