Sometimes, you have to challenge the executor of an estate

When people choose executors, they try to choose someone they trust to be both honorable and competent when it comes to following their wishes. Most of the time, people choose wisely.

There are certain kinds of people who intentionally target aging individuals for fraud. Sometimes they are nursing home or house care staff. Other times, they are people who become romantically entangled with someone near the end of life.

There are a number of different approaches to this kind of fraud, but the goal is always the same. An otherwise unrelated person gets added to a last will. That person then receives valuable assets because of his or her unscrupulous behavior.

The law on libel

The recent settlement of the lawsuit by Melania Trump against The Daily Mail has made headlines. The First Lady sued the publication for libel stemming from an article published in August, 2016.

The amount of the settlement, negotiated privately, remains undisclosed, although the Associated Press reported $2.9 million, far less than the $150 million sought.
