IN THE MATTER OF THE ESTATE OF RICHARD D. EHRLICH A-5439-10T2


IN THE MATTER OF THE ESTATE OF RICHARD D. EHRLICH  A-5439-10T2

We upheld the admission to probate of a Will lacking the formality requirements of N.J.S.A. 3B:3-2 because under N.J.S.A. 3B:3-3, there is clear and convincing evidence that the decedent intended the document, which he drafted, reviewed and gave his assent to, to constitute his Last Will and which reflects his final testamentary wishes.

  Judge Skillman dissents, believing that N.J.S.A. 3B:3-3 cannot reasonably be construed to authorize the admission to probate of an unexecuted Will. 06-29-12
