Do Appeals Courts Sometimes Give You a Hint of How They Will Rule?

If the decision in your will contest case starts off like the one in Marsh v. Marsh, you probably can discern that your chances of winning are not good. In Marsh, the court stated in its first paragraph “(t)his is the fourth appeal arising from the Estate of Monroe F. Marsh, deceased. Unwilling to accept the baselessness of their attacks against Marsh’s estate plan, Jane L. Marsh (Jane), his surviving spouse, through her son and attorney Michael A. Weiss, continue to assert frivolous claims against it.” Not a good sign for the contestants. Copyright by Robert Ray a Texas inheritance attorney.

Do You Have a Right to a Jury Trial in a Will Contest?

It depends on which state you live in. In Texas, contesting a will is just like any other civil trial, e.g., the Texas constitution gives you the right to a jury trial. If you file a will contest in some other states, like Ohio, you may not have a right to a jury trial. Apparently, in Ohio, the probate judge acts like judge and jury. While the probate judge has the right to empanel a jury, he doesn’t have to and the parties don’t have the same state constitutional right to a jury trial as Texas litigants have.
