18-0338, Tierney v. Tierney

District Court for Custer County, Judge Karin L. Noakes

Attorney for Appellant: Marsha E. Fangmeyer & Melodie T. Bellamy

Attorney for Appellee: John B. McDermott (Shamberg, Wolf, McDermott & Depue)

Civil Action: Dissolution of Marriage

Action Taken by Trial Court: The district court dissolved Lawrence and Kathryn Tierney’s marriage as well as divided the marital assets and debts, awarding Kathryn two tracts of land that had been in Lawrence’s family for decades. The court ordered Lawrence to pay an equalization judgment to Kathryn of $139,412. Both parties moved for a new trial or to alter or amend the judgment, which motions the district court denied.

Assignments of Error: Lawrence assigns, consolidated and restated, that the district court erred in (1) determining that his familial tracts were marital property, (2) awarding the familial tracts to Kathryn, (3) valuing three bank accounts based on the time of separation rather than the time of trial, (4) valuing the marital debt to Custer Federal Bank at the time of trial rather than the time of separation, (4) doubly discounting Kathryn’s pension for taxes, and (5) overruling his motion for a new trial or to alter or amend the decree.
