SMU Annual Texas Survey


This article discusses developments relating to the Texas law of intestacy, wills, estate administration, trusts, and other estate planning matters during the Survey period of December 1, 2021, through November 30, 2022. The reader is warned that not all cases decided during the Survey period are presented, and not all aspects of each case are analyzed. You must read and study each case’s full text before relying on it or using it as precedent. The discussion of most cases includes a moral, that is, the important lesson to be learned from the case. By recognizing situations that resulted in time-consuming and costly litigation in the past, readers may be able to reduce the likelihood of the same situations arising with their own clients.
