Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Torts — legal malpractice — standing
Brothers Bruce W. and Russell C. Bullamore appeal an order dismissing their claims against Attorney Eugene J. Brookhouse. After their father died, Brookhouse assisted their former stepmother in redoing her estate plan, eliminating them as beneficiaries. We conclude that the Bullamores pled no claim by which Brookhouse owed them, third-party nonclients, a duty, and that the court acted properly in dismissing their complaint with prejudice and in denying their motion for leave to amend their complaint a third time. We affirm.
