Parties' Statement of Issues

  • Appellant

    1. Whether the district court granting Appellee leave to file an amended petition complying with the requirements of N.D.C.C. § 44-04-21.2 after the deadline for commencing the action expired should be reversed;
    2. Whether the district court’s conclusion NDIRF is a “public entity” subject to open records requests should be reversed; and
    3. Whether the district court erroneously interpreted and applied N.D.C.C. § 44-04-19.1(8), and failed to afford protection to attorney-client privileged communication in issuing the writ.

  • Appellee 1

    1. Whether the district court abused its discretion in granting Petitioner leave to file an amended writ?
    2. Whether the district court erred in determining that NDIRF is a public entity subject to open records laws?

    4. Whether the district court’s finding of potential future liability and its creation of “hyper work product” exception were erroneous under North Dakota law?
    5. Whether the district court abused its discretion in denying Petitioner costs and attorney’s fees?
