Dismissal of Will Challenge for Lack of Standing
Matter of Bender, N.Y.L.J. March 27, 2008, at 34, col 6, (Sur. Ct., N.Y. County 2008)
Attorney Charles F. Gibbs successfully defended the proponents of the will from a challenge by the decedent’s grandson, achieving complete success, having the challenger’s petition dismissed for lack of standing. The Surrogate’s Court dismissed the objections filed by the decedent’s grandson who was not a distributee, but who claimed that he was a beneficiary of a prior will.
