Newsflash – Ilott v Blue Cross (formerly Ilott v Mitson) Judgment

leave a comment »

This is the case about the lady who cut out her only daughter from her will and left everything to some animal charities. The courts varied this under the Inheritance etc Act and after various hearings the case eventually reached the Supreme court just before Christmas. I have mentioned it on a number of occasions –  here here and here.

The case changed names when the Executor defending the will died, as an added complicating factor.

Anyway, the judgment will be out tomorrow at 9.45, and as the decision, whichever way it goes, will give a lot of very authoratitive guidance on how courts implement the law, so there is bound to be a lot of comment afterwards. And I’m sure that I will add another piece here. But not for a day or two,
