Judge moves to end 40-year war over Forest Hill man’s estate

This is truly a sad story and the ultimate illustration of what can go wrong in estate litigation. Unfortunately, regardless of the thought put into succession, it is difficult to guard against a party bent on litigation. I represented a family member in this matter some years ago and while that issue was ultimately resolved, it appears that the purchasers of the estate realty have not been so lucky.
