Case Summary

A-18-0876, In re Estate of Deena Chambers, deceased. Kent Chambers, Personal Representative (Appellant) v. State of Nebraska

County Court for Furnas County, County Judge Anne Paine

Attorneys for Appellant:  Jon S. Schroeder & Whitney Schroeder Lindstedt (Schroeder Schroeder Law Firm)

Attorneys for Appellee:  Morgan Robert Farguhar (Eisenhart Farguhar Law Firm) & Tom Patterson (Patterson Law Firm)

Probate Action:  Inheritance tax; acknowledged relation of a parent

Action taken by the Trial Court:  Following a hearing, the trial court entered an order on inheritance tax finding there was insufficient evidence to prove Anthony Kent Chambers is a person to whom Deena stood in the acknowledge relation of a parent for not less than 10 years prior to her death and ordering the parties to file an amended inheritance tax worksheet to reflect that finding.

Assignments of Error on Appeal:  Did the trial court err in requiring a hearing on an inheritance determination when the County Attorney, on behalf of the County, approved the calculation, voluntarily appeared, and waived notice of the inheritance tax determination? Did the trial court err in holding that the evidence did not establish that Anthony (the nephew of Deena’s husband) was a person to whom Deena, for more than 10 years prior to death, stood in the acknowledged relation of a parent?
