Case Summary

A-15-0811, In re Trust of Haberman. George Haberman (Appellant) v. Rex S. Haberman II, Phillip Haberman, and Mary Lou Haberman

Adams County, County Court Judge Robert A. Ide

Attorney for Appellant: David V. Drew (Drew Law Firm P.C., LLO)

Attorney for Appellee: Daniel E. Klaus (Rembolt Ludtke LLP)

Civil Action: Distribution of Trust Property

Action Taken by Trial Court: The trial court determined that George Haberman was not entitled to a portion of the trust property, and that George was barred from recovery by the doctrine of unclean hands.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: George Haberman argues the county court erred in (1) finding that an earlier agreement among the trust beneficiaries was not enforceable, (2) analyzing the agreement among the beneficiaries as a trust amendment and not a separate contract, (3) finding the agreement among the beneficiaries was void as against public policy, and (4) finding George was barred from relief by the doctrine of unclean hands.
