Conservatorships are essentially adult guardianships wherein a person can make legal, financial, and personal decisions for another. They are usually granted in order to protect the rights and assets of those with severe cognitive or mental health issues, such as dementia.

Litigation During the Pandemic

   Recently, the Wall Street Journal published an article concerning litigation related to the spreading of COVID. The article reports that personal injury lawsuits brought against businesses by infected customers and employees are nearly nonexistent in state and federal courts apart from a cluster of lawsuits targeting cruise lines. The existing laws have funneled most employee claims against employers into the workers compensation system, which do not typically award large sums to trial attorneys who can sue for pain and suffering in the courts.

Probable Cause to Challenge Wills

In the November 2019 Wade Ash Newsletter, Herbert E. Tucker submitted an article regarding the pros and cons of pre-death will contests. In that article, he pointed out only a handful of states will entertain a pre-death will contest. A majority of states, however, will not entertain a motion for determination of the validity of a will during the testator’s lifetime because a will is deemed ambulatory and, therefore, only takes effect upon the testator’s death. Simply stated, most Courts will not render advisory opinions where there is no actual controversy before the Court.
