Widow of boxer awarded $100,000 from estate

Posted on April 12th, 2010 No Comments

Boxer Arturo Gatti’s estate has been fiercely contested by his mother and brother following his mysterious death at a seaside resort in Brazil last July. While much of the estate remains unclaimed, Amanda Rodrigues, his widow, has been awarded $100,000 as financial compensation for the court and legal fees she had pay throughout the months of fighting over Gatti’s will.

Rodrigues was also awarded $2,000 a month for the care of the couple’s 18-month-old son by the same Quebec Superior Court judge.

While this case occurred in Canada, and not the United States, this kind of messy fighting over an estate is something you most likely want to avoid.
