Texas Supeme Court Refuses to Recongize Cause of Action for Tortious Interference with Inheritance Rights

TexasEarlier today, the Supreme Court of Texas declined to follow a long line of lower court cases when it refused to recognize a cause of action for tortious interference with inheritance rights.  However, the court did not preclude reconsidering the issue at a later time as the court indicated it was "not persuaded to consider it here." (emphasis added)

See Kinsel v. Lindsey, No. 15-0403 (Tex. May 26, 2017).
