Abstract

This article discusses judicial developments relating to the Texas law of intestacy, wills, estate administration, trusts, and other estate planning matters during the Survey period of November 1, 2007, through October 31, 2008. The discussion of most cases includes a moral that is the important lesson to be learned from the case. By recognizing situations that have resulted in time consuming and costly litigation in the past, the reader may be able to reduce the likelihood of the same situations arising with his or her clients.

Keywords: wills, trusts, estate planning, estate administration, probate
