Case Caption: Michael Lewis, Jr., Medina Rogers as Trustee for Delon Tyrone Lewis, Ingrid Rogers-Lake v. Patricia M. RogersCase Number: S. Ct. Civ. No. 2017-0072Date: 08/27/2020Author: Cabret, Maria M. Citation: 2020 VI 17Summary:
In cross-appeals from the Superior Court’s findings of fact and conclusions of law and accompanying order, entered in a partition action on July 25, 2017, because the Superior Court either failed to explain its decision with respect to each of the issues raised on appeal, or otherwise failed to address these issues entirely, this matter is remanded for the Superior Court to explain its decision, and to address several issues in the first instance. The issues include the basis recognition of expenses of one of the parties related to maintenance of the property at issue, failure to award appellants their proportionate share of the rental value of the upstairs unit of the property, the decision to equally distribute loan debt purportedly used solely for the benefit of one of the parties, and the determinations that the subject properties cannot be equitably partitioned in kind and that appellants should have the first option to purchase the interests of appellee.
