Roalsvik v. Comack

The Supreme Judicial Court affirmed the judgment of the district court denying Appellant's motion to modify the parties' divorce judgment and her mother for the court to reconsider that order, holding that the district court did not err in its judgment. On appeal, Appellant argued that the court summarily dismissed the guardian ad litem's report, testimony, and recommendations regarding primary residency and that the court erred by denying Appellant's motion for reconsideration. The Supreme Judicial Court held (1) the record evidence did not compel the court to conclude that it would be in the child's best interest to reside primarily with Appellant; (2) the court did not abuse its discretion by denying Appellant's motion for reconsideration; (3) the court did not "summarily dismiss" the court-appointed guardian ad litem's testimony; and (4) Appellant's contention that the court's analysis was incomplete was without merit.
