Sanford J. Schlesinger and Ross Katz of Schlesinger Gannon & Lazetera write that while the law is replete with examples of cases discussing the requisite mental capacity of a testator necessary to execute a will, few decisions exist wherein a court is faced with analyzing the requisite mental capacity necessary to execute an intervivos trust. A recent decision sheds light on this seldom analyzed area of law.
