Case Caption: Charles E. Engeman v. Kimberly L. EngemanCase Number: S. Ct. Civ. No. 2015-0023Date: 07/02/2015Author: Per CuriamCitation: Summary:

Considering the appellant's motion for a stay pending appeal requesting that this Court temporarily enjoin enforcement of a February 4, 2015 Superior Court opinion and order directing him to pay child support in accordance with a March 11, 2010 separation agreement he entered into with the appellee, his former wife, the Court holds that the appellant has not met his burden to show that he is entitled to such relief. To determine whether a litigant is entitled to a stay or injunction pending appeal, the Court considers: (1) whether the litigant has made a strong showing that he is likely to succeed on the merits; (2) whether the litigant will be irreparably injured absent a stay; (3) whether issuance of the stay will substantially injure the other parties interested in the proceedings; and (4) where the public interest lies. The assessment of all four factors heavily weighs against granting a stay pending appeal in this case. Accordingly, the appellant's motion to stay the Superior Court's February 4, 2015 order pending this appeal is denied.
