S-20-0574 Christine Guenther (Appellant) v. Walnut Grove Hillside Condominium Regime No. 3, Inc.

Douglas County District Court, Hon. Gregory M. Schatz

Attorneys: Thomas C. Dorwart & Adam J. Kost (Goosmann Law Firm, PLC, for Appellant) — Minja Herian & Gabreal Belcastro (Koley Jessen PC, LLO, for Appellee)

Civil: Nebraska and Federal Fair Housing Acts (FHA)

Proceedings Below: Following a bench trial, the court found that Appellant failed to sustain her burden of proof to show that her daughter was handicapped and that the requested accommodation was necessary.

Issues on Appeal: Appellant alleges that the court erred in 1) failing to correctly apply the proper burden-shifting analysis under the FHA; 2) finding that she failed to meet her burden of proof regarding disability of her daughter and the necessity and reasonableness of a requested accommodation; 3) failing to find that Appellee did not meet its burden to show the requested accommodation was unreasonable; and 4) failing to award costs and attorney fees to appellant.
