North Carolina Digital Assets Bill

WillsAs I have previously discussed, several states have brought forward bills in their respective legislatures that would provide access to the personal representative of a decedent's estate to his or her digital accounts. Now, it looks like North Carolina has become one of the newest states to introduce legislation to change whether the personal representative of an estate should have access to the digital accounts of the decedent. Provided below is a link to Senate Bill 279.

See Senate Bill 279, General Assembly of North Carolina, Session 2013.

Special thanks to Brian Cohan (Attorney at Law, Law Offices of Brian J. Cohan, P.C.) for bringing this to my attention.
