Parties' Statement of Issues

  • Appellant

    1. Was the trial court’s instruction regarding damages of what Sharon “gave up” in order to secure her sons an interest in the property erroneous as it was unrelated to the actions of Defendants?
    2. Where the Plaintiff proved damages, even under the measure of damages used by the trial court, did the court err, as a matter of law, in directing verdict in this legal malpractice case ?
    3. Was it error for the trial court to dismiss Alan and Eric Mitzel where the negligence of Defendants cost the sons their interest in the Section 19 land?
