Intentional Interference and Unjust Enrichment Claims in Connection with a Trust Not Barred by the One-Year Limitation for “Trust Contests” in Massachusetts

Are claims for intentional interference with a gift expectancy, and unjust enrichment of those who benefitted from a trust’s modification, barred by Massachusetts’ one-year limitations period for claims to “contest the validity of a trust”?

December 29, 2021), the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts answered this important question in the negative, and allowed the claims to proceed.
