Randall v. Potter

In Randall v. Potter, 506 P.2d 432 (Wyo. 1973), Mr. Randall died intestate, leaving an adoptive brother and sister and a biological sister. Id. at 432. The trial court determined that only the biological sister could inherit. The Court reversed, relying primarily on the Wyoming adoption statute then in place, which provided that adopted children have the same rights as biological children.
