Unjust Disposition

WillsOn an interesting note, testators have the right to write a will that creates what some may consider to be an unjust disposition. Past courts have stated that if a testator "has the capacity to make a will, he many make it as unjust as revenge can dictate."

See Heirs of Goza v. Estate of Potts, 374 S.W.3d 132 (Ark. Ct. App. 2012), Westlaw Headnote of the Day, Nov. 20, 2012.
