The determination of mental capacity and whether undue influence exists are ordinarily questions of fact.

A district court’s decision regarding discovery matters will not be reversed on appeal absent an abuse of discretion.

Whether a cotenant has ousted another cotenant from property is a question of fact.

A tenant in common who has ousted his cotenant is liable to the cotenant for rent or for use of the property.
