In Re Marriage of Winkler v. Winkler


2005 WI 100, 282 Wis. 2d 746, 699 N.W.2d 652 (WI Ct. App., 2005)


Trial court did not erroneously exercise its discretion in declining to reopen judgment where after the divorce, the employer (Milwaukee County) modified pension payout terms through a “backdrop” lump sum payment. The judgment was not ambiguous, there was no mutual mistake or fraud. The backdrop was an unanticipated windfall.
