Case Summary

A-20-909, Mehner (Appellant) v. Maxell

Douglas County, District Court Judge J. Michael Coffey

Attorney for Appellant:  Terry K. Barber (Barber & Barber, P.C., L.L.O.)

Attorney for Appellee: Ronald F. Krause, Michael R. Faz (Cassem, Tierney, Adams, Gotch & Douglas)

Attorney for Appellee: A. Victor Rawl, Jr., Henry W. Frampton IV, and Earl G. Greene III (Gordon Rees Law Firm)

Civil Action:  Legal Malpractice

Action Taken by Trial Court:  The district court dismissed defendant/appellee Christopher Pfansteil from the action for failure of timely service. The district court denied the appellant’s motion to recuse and entered summary judgment in favor of the remaining defendant/appellees.

Assignments of Error on Appeal:  The appellant contends, inter alia, that the district court erred in: (1) denying his motion to recuse; (2) dismissing Pfanstiel from the lawsuit; and (3) granting the remaining defendant/appellees’ motion for summary judgment because genuine issues of material facts existed and Neb. Rev. Stat. § 25-1335 (Reissue 2016) operated to preclude summary judgment.
