Case Summary

S-18-0794 James Saylor (Appellant) v. State of Nebraska, et al.

Lancaster County District Court, Judge Robert R. Otte

Attorneys:  Michael J. Wilson (Schaefer Shapiro, for Appellant); Douglas J. Peterson, David A. Lopez (Office of the Attorney General, for Appellee)

Civil: Negligence; Nebraska State Tort Claims Act

Proceedings below: The district court granted the State’s motion for summary judgment and dismissed Appellant’s amended complaint with prejudice.

Issues:  Whether the district court erred in granting the State’s motion for summary judgment because 1) the State both waived its right to challenge, and estopped itself from challenging, the sufficiency of Appellant’s statement on his tort claim forms that the amount of damages was ‘to be proven;’ and 2) Appellant’s tort claim forms sufficiently complied with the requirements of the STCA.”
