A-17-918,  In re Estate of Filsiger  

Cheyenne County, County Court Judge Randin Roland

Attorney for Appellant:  Robert M. Brenner (Robert M. Brenner Law Office)

Attorney for Appellee:  Paul E. Hofmeister (Hofmeister Law Offices, LLC)

Probate Action:  Estate Proceeding wherein certain claimants filed a claim in Berniece Filsiger’s estate proceedings alleging she received about $200,000 more than she should have received in distributions from her late husband’s estate.

Action Taken by Trial Court:  The county court granted summary judgment in favor of the co-personal representatives based upon its finding that the claim should have been filed as an improper distribution in the late husband’s estate proceedings.

Assignments of Error on Appeal:  The appellants/claimants contend that the county court erred in granting summary judgment in favor of the co-personal representatives; in finding that the claim had to be filed in the late husband’s estate; and by failing to find that fraud had been perpetrated upon the appellants/claimaints.
