Chalgian and Tripp represented the Trustee of a Trust created by Margaret Krum. When Ms. Krum died, two children who were cut out of the trust contested the validity of the trust. They claimed that their mother lacked capacity to create the trust and that she was unduly influenced. After discovery was closed, the contesting children dropped their claim of incapacity. Our client filed for summary disposition on the remaining claim of undue influence and prevailed. The contesting children appealed the trial court’s decision. In a recently released decision, the Court of Appeals affirmed the decision of the trial court, allowing the trust to be administered and the contesting children to remain cut out.
