Case Summary

S-19-0428 Terry L. Dondlinger & Valerie Dondlinger (Appellants) v. Jayson D. Nelson, an individual, Hunegs, Lebeave & Kvas, P.A., and Katie D. Figgins (Appellees)

Douglas County District Court, Judge Horacio Wheelock

Attorneys: James R. Welsh (Welsh & Welsh, P.C., L.L.O., for Appellants); Mark C. Laughlin, Jacqueline M. DeLuca (Fraser Stryker, P.C., L.L.O., for Appellees)

Topic: Professional negligence; Statute of limitations

Proceedings below: Appellants brought a profession negligence action within two years after the termination of the attorney-client relationship between the Appellants and the Appellees. However, the filing occurred 4 years after the allegedly negligent complaint in the original case was filed. The district court concluded that the continuing representation doctrine did not toll the statute of limitations and granted summary judgment to the Appellees.

Issue: Whether the facts of the case support an application of the continuing representation doctrine and the tolling of the statute of limitations.
