Nebraska Supreme Court reverses Cass County Court probate order to sell estate property at a public sale; Supreme Court, J Wright, allows private listing with commercial real estate broker first before heirs can ask county court judge to order public auction. In re Estate of Failla, S-09-170, 278 Neb. 770 "The evidence supports the conclusion that Diana should first attempt to sell the property by listing it at its appraised value. The county court is given discretion to determine how long the listing should continue. If this method of sale does not prove satisfactory, the court should direct that the property be sold at a public sale.?
