Settlement in beloved author's probate litigation

Many Georgia readers are familiar with the work of author Maurice Sendak. Perhaps best known for his book "Where the Wild Things Are," Sendak touched the lives of many and will forever hold a place among American children's authors. Sendak passed away in 2012, and his estate has been involved in probate litigation since then.

Georgia probate litigation: Laws to consider

When a loved one passes away, it is generally an emotionally difficult time. Often, family members and other important relations have no desire to contend with the legal aspects of dealing with their loved ones' possessions. However, it could be important to understand the various aspects of Georgia law and probate litigation, in the event that one is faced with it unexpectedly.

Probate litigation can involve unintended jurisdictional problems

Many in Georgia and throughout the country feel that one of life's most unpleasant tasks is determining how their estate will be distributed in the event of their incapacitation or deaths. When the person at the center of the case is an elderly tycoon who controls giant media companies, the stakes are inherently significantly higher and more complex. A recent probate litigation case has hit a snag when ousted members of Sumner Redstone's trust have brought suit to maintain the estate case's jurisdiction.
