AC44313 - Walzer v. Walzer ("In this marital dissolution action, the self-represented defendant, Roy Walzer, appeals from the trial court's postdissolution judgment in favor of the plaintiff, Carol Walzer, finding the defendant in contempt.On appeal, the defendant claims that the court improperly (1) found that his admitted failure to make property settlement payments to the plaintiff in accordance with the dissolution judgment was wilful, and (2) ordered the sale of the former marital home. We affirm the judgment of the court.")

AC44440 - Zakko v. Kasir ("In this domestic relations matter, the defendant, Laith Kasir, appeals from the trial court's order awarding, inter alia, $15,000 in attorney's fees to the plaintiff, Angham Zakko.The defendant claims that, in ordering him to pay attorney's fees, the trial court made a clearly erroneous factual finding and abused its discretion.We agree with the defendant and, therefore, reverse in part the judgment of the trial court.")
