Jury Selection for Huguette Clark Case Begins

ClarkAs I have previously discussed, heiress, Huguette Clark, died Tuesday, May 24, at the age of 104. Clark was the daughter of William Andrews Clark, a business man who had made a fortune in mining. Clark’s will was filed with a Manhattan court, allowing the world to see where Clark’s estimated $300 million estate will go.

Jury selection is starting September 17. The will in dispute is from an April 2005 will which left the majority of the estate to charities, her caregiver nurse, and god daughter. Her relatives received nothing under this will even though they had been the primary beneficiaries of a will signed six weeks prior to the disputed will.
