5229 - Mick-Skaggs v. Skaggs

In this divorce appeal, the court of appeals affirms the family court's denial of alimony to the wife, its decision to require the parties to pay their own attorney's fees, and its admission of certain photographs into evidence. The court of appeal modifies the family court's decision to grant the parties a no-fault divorce, concluding both parties presented sufficient circumstantial evidence of each party's infidelity to grant each party a divorce based on adultery.

5273 - Roe v. Bibby

Jane Roe, as parent and natural guardian of Judy Roe, James Roe, and Joyce Roe, minor children under the age of eighteen (minor Appellants), (collectively with Roe, Appellants) argues the circuit court erred in granting Michelle Bibby's (Respondent) motion for summary judgment. Appellants argue Respondent had a duty to warn Appellants under the special relationship exception and a premises liability theory.
