Professor Gerry W. Beyer has made available for download his article, published in the proceedings of the Texas College of Probate Judges 2019 Annual Meeting, Recent Cases: Intestacy, Wills, Probate, and Trusts (Aug. 30, 2019). The Abstract is as follows:
This article discusses judicial developments (mid-2018 to mid-2019) relating to the Texas law of intestacy, wills, estate administration, trusts, and other estate planning matters. The discussion of each case concludes with a moral, i.e., the important lesson to be learned from the case. By recognizing situations that have led to time consuming and costly appeals in the past, probate judges can reduce the likelihood of appeals and their success and estate planners can reduce the likelihood of the same situations arising with their clients.
