Attorneys: Jordan W. Adam (Appellant Genevieve Franke); Robert A. Mooney (Gross & Welch, P.C., L.L.O.); Susan M. Koenig (Mayer, Burns, Koenig & Janulewicz)

Civil: Conservatorship

Proceedings below: Following a bench trial, a permanent conservator was appointed for Appellant. Appellee filed a Petition to Bypass the Court of Appeals which was granted by the Nebraska Supreme Court.

Issue: The trial court erred in 1) finding Appellant had a mental deficiency and/or a physical disability that prevented her from managing her property and property affairs, 2) finding Appellant had such a deficiency that disabled her from managing her property, and 3) finding Appellant had property that would be wasted or dissipated unless a permanent conservator was appointed for her.
