Case Summary

S-19-1194 Asia R. Mann, n/k/a Asia R. Harrison v. Brian L. Mann (Appellant)

Douglas County District Court, Hon. J. Russell Derr

Attorneys: Aaron F. Smeall & Jacob A. Acers (Smith, Slusky, Pohren & Rogers, LLP, for Appellant) --- Kathryn D. Putnam (Astley Putnam, PC LLO, for Appellee)

Civil: Custody; In loco parentis; Summary judgment; Subject matter jurisdiction

Proceedings Below: The district court granted Appellee summary judgment and partially vacated a previous dissolution decree as to the custody of the minor child and Appellant’s in loco parentis status. The court found it lacked subject matter jurisdiction through the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act (“UCCJEA”) because California had previously entered a custody order and had not relinquished its exclusive and continuing jurisdiction over the minor child.

Issue on Appeal: Whether the district court erred in finding it lacked subject matter jurisdiction over the minor child under UCCJEA.
