Appeal From
Case No. 10-P-00114
North Central Judicial District, Ward County
Richard L. Hagar
2013 ND 215839 N.W.2d 811
Oral Argument 10/8/2013

Highlight

An appeal is moot if no actual controversy exists because subsequent events have made it impossible for the court to provide effective relief.
In an unsupervised probate of an estate, each proceeding before a court is independent of any other proceeding involving the same estate, and a concluding order on a petition to remove a personal representative is appealable without a certification under N.D.R.Civ.P. 54(b).
The decision on a petition to remove a personal representative lies within the district court's discretion.
