Woman’s coerced will thrown out by judge

Posted on April 29th, 2011 No Comments

A dead woman’s will was recently thrown out by a judge in Florida who determined that the will had been coerced by the woman’s attorney. The issue was brought to light by the woman’s cousin, who asked for the will to be overturned.

The will set up a $1 million trust fund to care for the dead woman’s pets and also left a seven-acre estate to the girlfriend of the woman’s attorney, whom the woman did not know. The will also stated that the girlfriend would care for the woman’s pets for a salary of $50,000 a year.

The woman’s cousin took the will to court, stating that the woman, who was in intensive care for the last part of her life, was coerced by her attorney to leave his girlfriend a substantial amount of her estate. The attorney was also found to have continued billing the woman’s estate after her death.
