Wisconsin Court of Appeals


Trusts and Estates – wills – validity — knowledge of contents

Sheldon Heck appeals an order of the circuit court denying the admission of the will of his father, Floyd Heck, to probate on the basis that the evidence failed to establish that Floyd had knowledge of the contents of the will at the time he executed it.[1] Sheldon also contends that the circuit court erred in denying his motion for reconsideration on the basis of newly discovered evidence, and he asserts that he is entitled to a new hearing in the interest of justice. We affirm the circuit court’s order. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
