Estate of Gillespie – Case Brief Summary (Arizona)

In Estate of Gillespie (Ariz. 1995) 183 Ariz. 282, the court concluded that although the hospitalized testator signed a will prepared by her son, the will was invalid because it was prepared without her request and her son did not disclose its contents to her. (Estate of Gillespie, supra, 903 P.2d at p. 593.)

It concluded the will was invalid because the testator "lacked any understanding of its contents." (Ibid.)
