Summary judgment in estate matter reversed on appeal
Ware Jackson partner, Michelle R. Meriam Blair, has won an appeal. The Washington County Court at Law granted summary-judgment against our client after determining she had released her interest in an estate and therefore had no standing to challenge the co-beneficiary’s actions as executor. Following oral argument, the Fourteenth Court of Appeals in Houston reversed, holding the trial court had improperly failed to consider our client’s fraud claim.
The opinion is Estate of Schulze, No. 14-20-00836-CV, 2022 WL 678446 (Tex. App.—Houston [14th Dist.] Mar. 8, 2022, no pet.). A video of the oral argument is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=In2458QqUW8
