Elderly woman of prominent family takes sons to court over late husband’s will

Posted on May 19th, 2011 No Comments

A 71-year-old woman recently found herself in courtĀ over the will of her late husband. The woman, who is part of Massachusetts’s prominent Rockett family, is suing two of her sons, whom she claims are swindling her out of money that her late husband left her in his will.

The case is currently in trial, where the woman’s attorneys have argued that the woman was only receiving $27,000 a month after the death of her husband in 2009 and that this amount has since dwindled to nothing. Attorneys for the woman’s sons stated that the woman was left $17 million in assets and has received all of it.

Some close to the case have speculated that the woman was put up to suing her sons by another one of her children, whom her husband purposely left out of his will after a familial dispute.
