Nebraska Supreme Court reverses Douglas County Court twice in one week again from probate cases. In re Trust Created by Isvik, S-06-420, 274 Neb. 525 In re Guardianship & Conservatorship of Cordel, S-06-591, 274 Neb. 545 Douglas County Court probate cases seem to get more than their share of reversals from the Nebraska Supreme Court. Isvik: the Supreme Court reverses the Douglas County Court's "reforming" a settlor's written revocation of a trust 2 weeks before her death to change it to a trustee replacement. Also the Supreme Court refused to dismiss the settlor's estate's appeal even though it failed to have an appropriate supersedeas undertaking on time after appealing. Cordel: Supreme Court allows parent of incapacitated adult to intervene to object to an $80000 trustee fee.
