PROPERTY AND PROBATE · MAY 12, 2015 · BY JAMES D CATLIN

Important decision on the requirements of setting aside a will on the grounds that the testator did not know or approve of the contents. Useful study of “suspicious circumstances” necessary to displace the presumption of knowledge and approval created by due execution of a will.

BY  · MAY 3, 2015

Decision as to the presence of testamentary capacity overturned.

  • The considered opinions of lawyers as to the existence of capacity can and will be discounted in certain circumstances including them not being appraised of medical evidence or evidence relevant to capacity generally.
