Appeal from a district court judgment on a jury verdict in a legal malpractice action claiming issue preclusion and offering extrinsic evidence of intent regarding obligations of a trust. The Court made clear the requirements for issue preclusion and also concluded that a party cannot introduce extrinsic evidence of a testator's intent to create ambiguity or otherwise alter the plain language of the trust. The Court affirmed the district court's judgment.
