Bill Davidson and Grant Goerke Prevailed in The MN Court of Appeals

May 3, 2019

On April 29, Lind Jensen attorneys Bill Davidson and Grant Goerke successfully defended an appeal of a favorable district court decision in a defamation and anti-SLAPP case. Lind Jensen had first prevailed in the case years ago when the claims were dismissed in the district court and affirmed on appeal. The plaintiff then sought to reopen the case, arguing that he was entitled to void a satisfied judgment based on a subsequent change in the  law. Lind Jensen defeated that attempt and prevailed on appeal for a second time. The Minnesota Court of Appeals in Nygard v. Walsh, No. A18-1315, agreed with Davidson and Goerke’s arguments that the district court lacked jurisdiction to hear a motion to vacate the satisfied judgment and that the change in law did not permit the judgment to be vacated.
