Case Summary

A-22-0024, Yvette M. White v. Jamison P. White & Ryan H. White, as Personal Representatives of the Estate of Leonard White (appellant)

Washington County District Court, Judge John E. Samson

Attorney for Appellant:  Perry Pirsch (Pirsch Legal Services, PC, LLO)

Attorney for Appellee:  Brent M. Kuhn, Haley L. Cannon (Brent Kuhn Law)

Civil Action:  Interpretation of Premarital Agreement, Claims in Probate Estate

Action Taken by Trial Court:  The district court found appellee did not need to file a claim against decedent's estate in order to receive a payment pursuant to the premarital agreement and awarded her a $100,000 judgment against appellants, and awarded appellee title to a camper under the district court's interpretation of the premarital agreement.

Assignments of Error on Appeal:  Appellants argue the district court erred in granting summary judgment to appellee despite her failure to file a claim against the personal representatives of decedent's estate or filing a claim in probate court based on its finding that appellants' knowledge and submission of a verified application for informal probate referencing the validity of the premarital agreement constituted a judicial admission; and erred in awarding a camper titled in decedent's name to appellee based on its interpretation of the premarital agreement.
