A-13-0635, Rita A. Sutton and Kai Carlson v. Helen Killham, et al. (Appellants)
District Court for Cheyenne County, District Judge Leo Dobrovolny
Attorney for Appellants: Robert M. Brenner (Brenner Law Firm)
Attorney for Appellees (Sutton and Carlson): Thomas D. Oliver
Attorney for Appellee (Reciever): Todd Morten (Island Huff Law Firm)
Civil Action: Appeal from orders denying motion to reconsider and ordering sale of interests in oil wells to proceed
Action taken by the Trial Court: The trial court directed the referee to sell the remaining interests of the parties in certain oil wells and removed the condition that the wells be placed into production before sale.
Assignments of Error on Appeal: Did the trial court err in directing the receiver to no longer pursue placing the oil wells into production prior to sale? Did the trial court err in determining that the Nebraska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (NOGC) had determined a denial of the receiver to operate and asserting there was no current lease covering the wells? Did the trial court err in modifying the prior final orders and giving the referee directions to proceed to sale without oil production? Did the trial court err in receiving and relying on letters from the director of the NOGCC? Did the trial court err in allowing the conduct of the receivership to continue when the receiver ignored, avoided, and failed to act upon numerous court directions?
