Appeal From
Case No. 2017-CV-03249
Northeast Central Judicial District, Grand Forks County
Lolita G. Hartl Romanick
2021 ND 5
Oral Argument 11/4/2020

Highlight

The district court did not abuse its discretion when it denied an untimely motion to amend the complaint.

An award of attorney fees under N.D.C.C. § 25-01.2-17 requires the successful enforcement of a right guaranteed by the Developmental Disability Act.

The tort of intentional infliction of emotional stress requires a reasonable finding of extreme and outrageous conduct that goes beyond all possible bounds of decency, which is a strenuously high standard.

Issues that are moot will generally not be addressed on appeal.
