Petitioner Files an Appeal in Will Contest Proceeding

A New York Probate Lawyer said that, this is an appeal from an order of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in the Second Judicial Department (207 App. Div. 388,202 N. Y. Supp. 201), entered December 7, 1923, which affirmed a decree of the Kings County Surrogate’s Court admitting to probate a paper propounded as the last will and testament of the deceased.
A Kings Estate Litigation Lawyer said that, another case is a motion to dismiss an appeal from an order of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in the Second Judicial Department (202 App. Div. 843,194 N. Y. Supp. 978), entered July 21, 1922, which unanimously affirmed a decree of the Kings County Surrogate’s Court admitting to probate a paper propounded as the last will and testament of the deceased deceased. The motion was made upon the ground that permission to appeal had not been obtained.

The only question was as to whether the will was duly executed, one of the witnesses testifying that there was no publication thereof.

Accordingly, the court held that the order is affirmed, with costs, on ground that contestant’s evidence was incredible as matter of law.
