Docket No.: 20200025
Filing Date: 10/21/2020
Case Type: WORKERS COMPENSATION
Author: VandeWalle, Gerald W.

Highlight: Statutory interpretation presents a question of law. Statutory provisions are given their plain, ordinary, and commonly understood meaning unless a contrary intention plainly appears.

For purposes of WSI benefits, a compensable injury includes a mental or psychological condition caused by a physical injury, but only when the physical injury is determined with reasonable medical certainty to be at least fifty percent of the cause of the condition as compared with all other contributing causes combined, and only when the condition did not preexist the work injury.

G & D Enterprises v. Liebelt 2020 ND 213
Docket No.: 20190256
Filing Date: 10/21/2020
Case Type: TORTS (NEGLIGENCE, LIAB., NUIS.)
Author: Tufte, Jerod E.

Highlight: The duty which gives rise to a nuisance claim is the absolute duty not to act in a way which unreasonably interferes with other persons’ use and enjoyment of their property.

To succeed on a trespass claim, the plaintiff must establish the defendant intentionally entered the land of another, or caused a thing or third person to do so, without the consent of the landowner.

A district court’s decision granting or denying injunctive relief is equitable in nature, rests within its sound discretion, and will not be reversed on appeal absent an abuse of discretion.
