Another question from Gregory Stock’s book is this:
If a wealthy uncle died and left everything to you, would you fight other relatives who threatened to contest the will unless you shared the estate with them? Assume you think they have no reasonable claim but may create a bitter enough legal battle to use up most of the inheritance.
Yes, but only on principle.
I’d be likely to share the estate with other relatives, in the first place.
But if they were so greedy and hostile as to threaten to contest the will, they wouldn’t deserve any part of the estate.
