District Court for Lancaster County, District Judge Lori Maret

Attorneys for Appellant:  William Gregory Lake & Todd Olon Engleman (Nebraska Legal Group Law Firm)

Attorney for Appellee:  David P. Kyker

Civil Action:  Contempt

Action taken by the Trial Court:  The trial court found Joseph to be in willful contempt after he failed to return the parties’ minor child to Caroline after his parenting time was over.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Did the trial court err by finding that Caroline presented clear and convincing evidence that Joseph was in willful and contumacious contempt of court? Did the trial court err by sustaining relevance objections during the testimony of the parties’ daughter? Did the trial court err in failing to permit Joseph’s attorney to make an offer of proof regarding the daughter’s testimony?
