S-13-0543, In re Estate of Ralph R. Greb, Nanette Joy Wright (Appellant) v. Richard A. Greb (Cross-Appellant) and First Nebraska Trust Company

Lancaster County, Hon. Thomas Fox

Attorneys: Stanton N. Beeder, Kara J. Ronnau (Cline Williams) (representing Nanette Wright); J.L. Spray, Christina L. Usher (Mattson Ricketts) (representing Richard Greb) Timothy L. Moll, Ramzi J. Hynek, Shelia A. Bentzen (Rembolt Ludtke) (representing First Nebraska Trust Company)

Civil: Probate

Proceedings below:  County court denied the beneficiaries’ respective objections and approved the personal representative’s plan for distributions from the estate.

Issues: The County Court erred in determining that the U.S. Bank and Wells Fargo accounts were multiple-party accounts with a right of survivorship. II. The County Court erred in determining that extrinsic evidence of Ralph's intent was relevant when the respective contracts for deposit for the U.S. Bank and Wells Fargo accounts were in substantially the same form provided in Neb. Rev. Stat. § 30-2719(a). III. The County Court erred in determining that the contracts for deposit for the U.S. Bank and Wells Fargo accounts were not submitted into evidence. IV. The County Court erred in finding that it was necessary to determine whether

Appellant could attack the legal existence and corporate actions of G & G. V. The County Court erred in determining that Appellee did not have knowledge of the involuntary administrative dissolution of G & G. VI. The County Court erred in determining that an involuntarily administratively dissolved corporation may authorize the transfer of shares or securities.

VII. The County Court erred in failing to determine that an involuntarily administratively dissolved corporation may not authorize and issue corporate loans to officers and other business entities. VIII. The County Court erred in failing to determine that an involuntarily administratively dissolved corporation may not authorize and issue corporate dividends.

Cross-Appeal by Greb: 1. The County Court erred in determining that performance of the Wright Notes took place in Nebraska. 2. The County Court erred in determining that the weight of factors considered in resolving the conflict of laws between Nebraska and Arizona on the status of the Wright Notes favored using Nebraska law. 3. The County Court erred in determining that the Wright Notes do not constitute indebtedness owed by Nanette Wright and the amount of the Wright Notes should not be offset against Nanette Wright's interest in the Estate. 4. The County Court erred in determining that the Wright Notes should be distributed in kind to the Decedent's children.
