In the Matter of the Civil Commitment of: Brandon-le Douglas Olson

TOUSSAINT, Chief Judge
On appeal from the district court's order for his indeterminate
commitment as a sexually dangerous person, appellant Brandon-le Douglas
Olson challenges the district court's findings that he is highly likely
to reoffend and is unable to adequately control his sexual impulses and
the district court's conclusion that no less-restrictive treatment than
the Minnesota Sex Offender Program was appropriate or available.
Because we see no error in the court's findings or conclusions, we

In the Matter of the Civil Commitment of:
Richard Russell Fageroos.

In this appeal from an order for civil commitment as a
sexually dangerous person, Richard Fageroos challenges the sufficiency
of the evidence to support his commitment, his placement at the
Minnesota Security Hospital, and the admissibility of an expert's report
and a witness's supplementary testimony. Because the district court's
commitment orders are supported by clear and convincing evidence;
because Fageroos failed to demonstrate the availability of a suitable,
less-restrictive treatment program; and because Fageroos's evidentiary
challenges were not preserved for appeal and do not provide a basis for
reversal, we affirm.

In re the Marriage of:

Eileen Walsh Doyle, petitioner,


Joseph William Doyle,

Appellant Joseph William Doyle argues that the district
court abused its discretion by denying his motion to modify the spousal
maintenance provision of his marital dissolution judgment and decree.
We affirm.

VoiceStream Minneapolis, Inc.,
d/b/a T-Mobile, a Delaware corporation,


RPC Properties, Inc.,

Appellant RPC Properties, Inc., made a motion to the
district court seeking enforcement of a settlement agreement and
requesting attorney fees and consequential damages. The district court
granted the motion, awarded attorney fees and costs, but did not grant
appellant's request for consequential damages. Appellant now challenges
(1) the adequacy of the district court's order because it does not
expressly state its reasoning for denying consequential damages; (2) the
district court's denial of appellant's request for an additional
evidentiary hearing; and (3) the denial of a consequential damages
award. We affirm.

In re the Marriage of:
Stephen John Navin,


Christina Marie Navin,

Appellant Stephen John Navin and respondent Christina Marie
Navin lived together for ten years before they were married in February
2001. They have three children, two of whom were born before the
marriage. When respondent moved out of the parties' home in November
2003, the children were 10, 8, and 2 years old. A judgment and decree
of dissolution was entered in December 2005, based on the record
compiled during a four-day trial.
On appeal from the district court's denial of his posttrial
motions for amended findings or a new trial, appellant challenges the
district court's (1) award to respondent of sole physical custody of the
children; (2) denial of his request for an updated custody evaluation;
(3) refusal to give him access to statements made by the two older
children to the custody evaluator regarding their preferences; (4)
alteration of the parenting time schedule that was followed and used by
the parties before trial; (5) distribution to appellant of all of his
credit card debt; and (6) award to respondent of a substantial portion
of his nonmarital interest in the homestead. Because the district
court's findings are reasonably supported by the evidence and because
those findings adequately support the court's conclusions of law and its
exercise of discretion, we affirm.

Anthony John Van Dyck, petitioner,


Tiffany Nicole Van Dyck Snidarich,


Appellant challenges the district court order granting
respondent's motion to modify parenting time, arguing that the district
court abused its discretion in (1) granting respondent's motion to
relocate within the state contrary to the provisions of the agreement of
the parties as adopted in the judgment and decree; (2) restricting
appellant's parenting time schedule; and (3) not holding an evidentiary
hearing. We affirm.
