Prime example of greed

To me this is a prime example of greed on both ends, the so called relatives who always seem to come out of the woodwork after death but have little to nothing to do with the person while alive. And then comes the lawyer & group of hospital employees that cared for her & were paid well for doing so. One would think that with the amount involved the lawyer would have highly suggested that she leave at least some to those relatives previously named so that they would have a much harder time contesting but then that may have cost a few bucks. Couldn't they all just get along? http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/jury-selection-set-tues-nyc-heiress-trial-20275966

in the end ...I wouldnt be suprised if the first will stands.
Her capacity to change it at the age of 95 will be suspect...especially if her "gifting" and generousity up till then can be proven to be out of habit.
Sadly...NY probate court can allow most of this fortune to be "allocated" to lawyers by the time a decision is rendered. Lawyers always get paid!

... this would not be the first time a wealthy patient was influenced by her caregivers
.. it's a shame
