Abbott v. Brennemann, 288 Neb 389 (06/27/14)

Domina Law Group's client, a second generation trustee of a trust owning stock in a closely-held corporation, sued for an accounting by the trustees. She proved no accounting had been made, but was unable to quantify damages to the trust. An argument that IRS Forms K-1 constituted accounting was rejected.

The Supreme Court held that where a trustee fails to perform a duty and suit is necessary by a beneficiary to establish the breach of duty, but the beneficiary is unable to prove damages, nonetheless, the beneficiary is entitled to claim, under relevant statutes, and recover attorneys' fees because the burden of enforcing the trustee's duty has been born by the beneficiary.

2012

Behrens v. Blunk, 284 Neb 454 (2012) (Prior decision, 280 Neb 984 (2010)

This case held that the constitutional privilege against self-incrimination under the Fifth Amendment applies to discovery in civil actions. The Nebraska Supreme Court held that a civil litigant who invokes the Fifth Amendment privilege may not be sanctioned because the party fails to obey an order to provide or permit discovery on Fifth Amendment grounds under Neb Ct R Disc § 6-337(b)(2). The Court in this case also held there is no constitutional right to have civil proceedings stayed pending the outcome of a criminal investigation, but the Supreme Court will "require trial courts to balance the competing needs of the parties under their inherent power to do justice."

Accordingly, the Supreme Court adopted the federal standard holding that before a trial court dismisses an action because the plaintiff invokes the Fifth Amendment in response to discovery requests, it must first (1) balance the parties' interests and (2) consider whether a less dramatic remedy could accommodate the plaintiff's privilege against self-incrimination and maintain fairness to the defendant
