Bailey v. Bailey – Case Brief Summary (Wyoming)

In Bailey v. Bailey, 954 P.2d 962, 966 (Wyo. 1998), the Court remanded for a hearing because the record demonstrated a possibility that a cash payment might be "sufficiently unfair" and work a significant hardship on Mr. Bailey.

The purpose of the hearing was to determine if that was the circumstance faced by Mr. Bailey and, if so, for the trial court to fashion an appropriate and reasonable payment schedule that afforded Mrs. Bailey interest on the lump sum award, as well as the lump sum itself in installments.
