In in re Paschall, the Waco Court of Appeals considered a mandamus challenge to a trial court's order that that an estate executor had to produce a copy of testamentary trust documents to those contesting the underlying will. The executor argued that the contestants did not have standing since they were not parties interested in the estate or trust. The court of appeals held that the trial court did not abuse its discretion because the contestants did show at least some evidence that they were parties interested in the estate.
