STATE OF MINNESOTA

DISTRICT COURT
SIXTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT
Case type: Other Civil – Torrens
In the matter of the Petition of
Anthony W. Palma as Personal Representative of the Estate of Michael
J. Paulucci
For an order for relief in connection
with Certificate of Title Nos. 203092,
203093,
216950, and 217271.
TO THE HONORABLE JUDGES OF
THE DISTRICT COURT OF
ST. LOUIS COUNTY:
Comes now the Petitioner and shows to
the Court as follows:
Introduction
1. That Petitioner is the Personal
Representative of the Estate of
Michael J. Paulucci (the “Estate”),
date of death August 8, 2020, and
in that capacity seeks an order: (1)
acknowledging the termination of
any interest of Lori J. Paulucci in the
parcels registered under Certificate
of Title Nos. 203092, 203093,
216950, and 217271 and the parcel

described in Document No. 328427;
and (2) authorizing Petitioner to
convey the foregoing properties to
Petitioner as trustee of the Michael
J. Paulucci Family Trust. Michael
J. Paulucci’s marriage to Lori J.
Paulucci was dissolved on December 16, 1983. The judgment of
dissolution incorporated a stipulated
mutual release of all interests in real
property held by the parties.
Factual Background
2. That on October 30, 1975 the Reg
istrar of Titles entered Certificate
of Title No. 203092 to Michael J.
Paulucci for land described on the
attached Exhibit A. Michael J. Paulucci was not married at that time.
3. That on October 30, 1975 the Reg
istrar of Titles entered Certificate
of Title No. 203093 to Michael J.
Paulucci for land described on the
attached Exhibit B. Michael J. Paulucci was not married at that time.
4. That on January 21, 1978 Michael J.
Paulucci was married to Lori J.
Paulucci. See Separation, Property
Settlement and Support Agreement
(“Separation Agreement”) dated
December 13, 1983, a certified
copy of which is attached hereto as
Exhibit C.
5. That on April 5, 1979 the Registrar
of Titles entered Certificate of Title
No. 216950 to Michael J. Paulucci
for land described on the attached
Exhibit D. Michael J. Paulucci was
married to Lori J. Paulucci at that
time.
6. That on April 25, 1979 the Registrar
of Titles entered Certificate of Title
No. 217271 to Michael J. Paulucci
for land described on the attached
Exhibit E, resulting from the sale of
a portion of the land described in
Certificate of Title No. 142686 by
Michael J. Paulucci to Lois Paulucci,
Michael J. Paulucci’s mother.
Michael J. Paulucci was married to
Lori J. Paulucci at the time Certificate
of Title No. 217271 was issued, but
Michael J. Paulucci had acquired the
land described in Certificate of Title
No. 142686 in 1957, before he was
married. A true and correct copy
of Certificate of Title No. 142686 is
attached hereto as Exhibit F.
7 That on April 8, 1981, Michael J.
Paulucci purchased by Indenture the
land described on the attached Exhibit G, which Indenture is recorded
with the St. Louis County recorder’s
Office as Document No. 328427.
Michael J. Paulucci was married to
Lori J. Paulucci at that time. This
parcel has not been registered.
8. That on December 13, 1983, Michael
J. Paulucci and Lori J. Paulucci entered into the Separation Agreement
attached hereto as Exhibit C, which
provides at paragraph 10:
That each of the parties hereto fully
and wholly releases the other from
any and all right, title, claim or interest which he or she may have under
the law of the State of Florida or
the law of the State of Minnesota or
otherwise in any property either real
or personal belonging to the other,
excepting only as hereinafter or
hereinabove specifically provided,
including rights of dower; and each
party hereby waives, discharges,
releases and conveys any and all
rights, title and interest which he or
she may have or acquire during the
lifetime of the the other, or at his or
her own death, by reasons of their
marriage in and to all the property,
both personal and real, which now
is or during the lifetime or at the
death of the parties may be owned
by them or either of them and to
which they or either of them may

be entitled or which may be in any
trust established by either of them
for himself or herself. Specifically,
except as expressly provided in this
Agreement, each party waives and
releases any and all rights he or she
may have or acquire at any time, as
Husband, widower, Wife or widow,
in and to any property or estate of
the other. . .
The Separation Agreement further
provides that the parties have each
made full disclosures of their financial condition to each other (para.
3); that the Separation Agreement is
a complete agreement superseding
all previous agreements and understandings regarding the subject
matter (para. 5); that the Separation
Agreement is to be construed under
Florida law (para. 7); that the parties
have been represented and advised
by counsel (para. 8); that Husband
will pay to Wife
$3,600 per month child support until
their youngest minor child reaches
the age of 19 years (para. 12(a)); that
Husband will pay to Wife a $10,000
furniture allowance in connection
with her taking possession of the
home (para. 15); that Husband will
provide Wife with a new Cadillac
Seville every three years until their
youngest minor child reaches the
age of 19 years (para. 16(a)); that
Husband will pay Wife $50,000 at
or before the sale of a family-owned
company (para. 17); and that Husband will deed the marital residence
to Wife and will pay up to
$12,000 annually for lawn maintenance, babysitting, and housekeeping services (para. 20).
9. That on December 16, 1983, Final
Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage
(“Judgment”) was entered in In re
the Marriage of Michael J. Paulucci
and Lori J. Paulucci, Civil Action
No. 83-925-CA-03, Circuit Court in
and for Volusia County, Florida, as
set forth in the attached Exhibit H.
The court that issued the Judgment
approved the Separation Agreement
and incorporated the Separation
Agreement in the Judgment. See
Judgment, para. 4.
10. That the parties’ mutual release of
claims in the Separation Agreement
is valid as a matter of law. Minnesota
law requires the enforcement of
a release of property claims in a
dissolution proceeding where the
requirements of a valid contract are
satisfied. See Nelson v. Quade, 413
N.W.2d 824, 828 (Minn. Ct. App.
1987) (“We therefore hold that the
parties were
competent to enter into agreements
concerning solely matters of property division. . . . Enforceability will
depend on whether all necessary elements of a contract are satisfied.”);
see also Yohannes v. Habtesilassie,
No. A07-99, 2008 WL 73708, at *2
(Minn. Ct. App. Jan. 7, 2008) (“The
district court did not act arbitrarily by
denying husband’s motion to reopen
the judgment. The written settlement
agreement that was incorporated
into the judgment contains a clear
mutual release of claims.”); see also
Johnson v. Johnson, No. A06-1415,
2007 WL 2363888, at *4 (Minn.
Ct. App. Aug. 21, 2007) (“But it is
undisputed that wife waived her right
to any further benefit from the plan
in two respects—when she agreed
that husband was entitled to receive
the balance of the plan and when the
parties agreed to release each other
from all claims and rights “[t]o share,
as a result of the marital relationship,
in the other party’s estate upon the
latter’s death[,]” or “[t]o any other

property right, benefit, or privilege in
or from the property of the other.’”).
The Separation Agreement manifests
the requirements of an enforceable
contract, i.e., offer, acceptance, and
consideration. See Commercial
Assocs., Inc. v. Work Connection,
Inc., 712 N.W.2d 772, 782 (Minn. Ct.
App. 2006). Foreign judgments are
enforceable in Minnesota. See Minn.
Stat. § 548.27 (“The court administrator shall treat the foreign judgment
in the same manner as a judgment
of any district court or the supreme
court of this state.”).
11. On information and belief, that on
November 12, 1998, Lori J. Paulucci
was married to Mark P. Nasrallah.
See Affidavit of Mark P. Nasrallah
(“Nasrallah Affidavit” or “Nasrallah
Aff.”), filed herewith, para. 1.
12. On information and belief, that on
February 4, 2013, Lori Paulucci, as
Settlor, executed the Lori Paulucci
Revocable Trust (“Trust”) in favor of
Lori Paulucci, as Trustee, as set forth
in Exhibit A to the Nasrallah Affidavit.
The Trust Agreement designates
Mark P. Nasrallah as the successor
trustee in the event of Lori Paulucci’s
death. See Nasrallah Aff. Ex. A,
Art. III(A). The Trust Agreement
designates Lori Paulucci’s daughter
and son, Angela Milich and Jeno
Paulucci, and Mr. Nasrallah’s sons,
Kyle Nasrallah and Drew Nasrallah,
as her “children,” and designates
her children so-defined and their
descendants as “Settlor’s descendants.” See Nasrallah Aff. Ex. A, Art.
I(B). The Trust Agreement provides
that following Lori Paulucci’s
death, the trust assets will be distributed
to “Settlor’s descendants.” See
Nasrallah Aff. Ex. A, Art. II(E).
13. On information and belief, that
on February 4, 2013, Lori Paulucci
executed the Last Will and Testament
of Lori Paulucci (“Will”) as set forth in
as Exhibit B to the Nasrallah Affidavit.
The Will provides that upon her
death, Lori Paulucci’s entire estate
passes to the Trust. See Nasrallah
Aff. Ex. B, Art. III. The Will names

Mark P. Nasrallah acted as personal
representative under the Will and as
trustee under the Trust, as set forth in
paragraph 5 of the Nasrallah Affidavit.
Mr. Nasrallah distributed all of the
Trust assets known to him, and the
Trust assets he distributed did not
include any interest in real property
located in the State of Minnesota. Id.
Further, to Mr. Nasrallah’s knowledge,
no real property located in the State
of Minnesota passed under the
Will. Id.
16. On information and belief, that no
claim has been asserted by Lori
Paulucci or in the right of Lori
Paulucci for any interest in the real
property described herein since
the dissolution of the marriage of
Michael J. Paulucci and Lori Paulucci
on December 16, 1983. Any such
claim made more than 37 years after
the dissolution would be barred by
laches. See, e.g., Hempel v. Hempel,
No. A17-1055, 2018 WL 4395012, at
*4 (Minn. Ct. App. Sept. 17, 2018)
(motion to reopen property division
5 years after dissolution barred by
laches).
