Posted: Aug 29, 2014

By: Washington State Estate Planning & Probate Lawyer Matthew J. Cruz

The Washington State Court of Appeals, Division I, issued its decision in the Matter of the Estate of Karl O. Molck, agreeing with the arguments made by Beresford Booth attorney Matthew J. Cruz. The Court decided the issues in favor of the estate and awarded the estate and its personal representative their costs and attorneys’ fees from the appellant.

The Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court’s decision to dismiss a creditor of the estate’s TEDRA Petition because the creditor failed to bring a separate claim against the estate, as required by RCW 11.40.100(1).  The Court of Appeals further awarded the estate its costs and attorneys’ fees pursuant to RCW 11.96A.150.
