Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Family – divorce — voluntary dismissal
Andrew Kittelson appeals an order dismissing Patricia Kittelson’s petition for divorce. Andrew argues the circuit court erroneously exercised its discretion by: (1) granting Patricia’s motion for voluntary dismissal without considering the factors set forth in Clark v. Mudge, 229 Wis. 2d 44, 599 N.W.2d 67 (Ct. App. 1999); and (2) failing to address his guardian’s motion for leave to file a counterclaim. We agree. We therefore reverse the court’s order and remand for the court to apply the Clark factors and consider the guardian’s motion. This opinion will not be published.
