Oral arg. – COA – 3/22/18

at 10:00 the COA will hear the case of In the Matter of the Estate of Roselle Rogers, Deceased: Frederick M. Rogers, Jr., v. Walter T. Rogers. Executor, Walter T. Rogers Individually and William T. Rogers

After their mother Roselle Rogers  died in January of 2013, Frederick Rogers moved to set aside her will claiming that she had been unduly influenced by his brother Walter Rogers who was also a lawyer.  Roselle’s husband Frederick  had been a lawyer and there was a substantial estate including a lot of timberland.   After Frederick wrote to Walter in 1997 that he no longer wanted to be part of the family trust, Roselle redid her will and excluded Frederick but made provisions for Frederick outside of the will.   Frederick lost after a jury trial and appealed.
