A-15-0767 In re Guardianship of Aimee E. Sadowski, an incapacitated and protected person.

Douglas County, Susan Bazis

Attorney for Appellants: Brent M. Kuhn (Brent Kuhn Law)

Attorney for Appellee/Guardian Ad Litem: John M. Walker, Sarah F. Macdissi, Catherine E. French (Lamson, Dugan & Murray, LLP)

Attorney for Appellee/Successor Guardian and Cross-Appellant: Barbara J. Prince

Civil Action: Guardianship

Action Taken by Trial Court: The trial court granted summary judgment in favor of appellees (Sadowski's guardian and guardian ad litem) finding that appellant (Sadowski's mother) was not suited to be appointed co-guardian of Sadowski. The trial court also granted appellant's motion for visitation by providing that such visitation would be determined by the guardian and Sadowski's treatment team. This court subsequently sustained appellees' motion for summary dismissal in part, finding that the order granting summary judgment was not a final appealable order, and thereby limiting the issue on appeal to the trial court's visitation order.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Did the county court err in ordering that visitation between Sadowski and her mother would be determined by the guardian and Sadowski's treatment team?

Assignment of Error on Cross-Appeal: Did the county court err in granting appellants' motion for visitation and ordering the visits should resume within 30 days of the court's order?
