Family Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Roy, Christopher


AC38258 - Emerick v. Emerick ("In this marital dissolution action, the self-represented defendant, Roger Emerick, appeals from the judgment of the trial court, Ficeto, J., claiming that the court (1) demonstrated bias against him on the basis of his gender and status as a self-represented party; (2) abused its discretion in awarding the plaintiff, Denise Emerick, $100,000 in lump sum alimony and in distributing the marital property; (3) improperly denied his request for an order regarding the plaintiff’s grandchildren; (4) improperly denied his request for a jury trial; and (5) improperly denied his motions for reargument and for a mistrial. We find none of these claims persuasive and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
