More on whether there is a duty to beneficiaries for failing to prepare a will in time
A few days ago I posted a comment on a new case on the issue of whether there is a duty to third parties for not acting quickly enough in the preparation of a will. See here. The most recent installment of the ABA/BNA Lawyers' Manual on Professional Conduct has an article on the case. It is available here, although I am not sure if the link will work if you don't have a subscription to BNA. If it doesn't, look for the article with this citation: 25 Law. Man. Prof. Conduct 161.
