Click here to read about the litigation over trusts in Walt Disney’s family. Hat Tip to Gary Beyer at Wills Trusts and Estates Prof Blog.
Robert Anglen, writing for the Arizona Republic: "The court battles revolve around the fortune of one of the legends of American entertainment, Walt Disney. They trace back to secret land deals in Florida. A prominent East Valley developer. A controversial Arizona real-estate baron. And two Disney heirs, his grandchildren, who inherited hundreds of millions of dollars.
The cases illustrate how even the most careful estate planning may not prevent vicious court fights from erupting when families feud. Relatives take sides, attorneys clash, and original estate terms may be altered."
