Case Summary

A-15-0861, David and Kristine Yost (Appellants) v. Village of North Loup, Nebraska

District Court of Valley County, District Judge Karin L. Noakes

Attorney for Appellants: Christopher P. Wickham (Sennett, Duncan, Jenkins & Wickham, P.C., L.L.O.)

Attorney for Appellee: Heather L. Sikyta (Sikyta Law Office)

Civil Action: Action for Damages; Basement Flooding

Action taken by the Trial Court: The district court found the Yosts failed to prove the backup was sewage or that the Village was responsible; denied the Yost's claims of negligence, res ipsa loquitur, and inverse condemnation; and overruled the Yost's motion for new trial.

Assignments of Error and Issues on Appeal: Did the district court err in finding the Yosts failed to prove that it was sewage that backed up into their basement? Did the district court err in holding the Village was not responsible for the backup? Did the district court err in ruling in favor of the Village with respect to the Yost's causes of action of negligence, res ipsa loquitur, and inverse condemnation? Did the district court err in overruling the Yost's motion for new trial?
