Respondents' Opening: Stray Thoughts

Here are some notes from our in-class discussion of the Respondents' Opening today:

The petitioners must prove…
  • 1.      Nobody will be able to show that money is excessive
  • 2.      No witness will be able to prove that Estelle H-P was not in her right mind

The evidence will show:
  • 1.      That she WAS in her right mind
  • 2.      That the money is not excessive (old estate, etc.)
  • 3.      The law, in fact, DOES NOT ALLOW FOR THIS TO HAPPEN – people who die with money can do with it what they want (think – you’re rich – what do you want to happen with your money?)
