Alex Kleinjan, ’24, published Nebraska Supreme Court case summaries for the Nebraska State Bar Association’s The Nebraska Lawyer magazine. This new section summarizes major cases from the Nebraska Supreme Court. Students from Nebraska Law and Creighton Law prepare and submit the summaries for publication.
Kleinjan completed this project as part of his Schmid Research Fellowship. He worked with the NSBA, fellowship director Professor Stefanie Pearlman, and Wendy Wussow, former Clerk of the Nebraska Supreme Court, to identify potential cases. Through his research, Kleinjan identified the following cases for summarization: Sinu v. Concordia University, State v. Sullivan, Timothy L. Ashford, PC LLO v. Roses, In re Adoption of Faith F., Muller v. Weeder, Chatterjee v. Chatterjee, State v. Lewis, Pinnacle Bancorp, Inc. v. Moritz, State v. Johnson, Charter West Bank v. Riddle, and Adams Land & Cattle, LLC v. Widdowson.
