David P. Hathaway, an attorney in Dean Mead’s Orlando office and chair of the Trust and Estate Litigation Practice Group, was recently quoted in the Orlando Business Journal article “To Sue or Not to Sue.” The article spotlights some contentious factors that may be unexpected, unique or unclear but can end up in court. Hathaway’s example explains when a will or trust could be challenged.
The following is an excerpt of his quote. “However,” Hathaway states, “there are times when voiding a last will or trust does not provide an adequate remedy, and in those cases a plaintiff may be able to sue for tortious interference with an expectancy to receive an inheritance.”
