Huguette Clark, whose copper-baron father died in 1925, died in New York recently, leaving a will that devises most of her property to charities, gives a substantial gift to her lawyer and accountant, and completely disinherits all of her family members, reports MSNBC.
As if this alone didn't make the estate rife for a fight, Joel Schoenmeyer notes in his "Death and Taxes" blog that the attorney, who was also named co-executor of the will, cut off Clark's relatives from contact with her in 2005. Meanwhile, the accountant co-executor . . .yeah - he's a convicted sex offender, of the distributing-lewd-materials-to-minors stripe.
