Whether certain probate-related orders are or are not subject to appeal is a topic that comes up with some frequency on this blog [click here]. In an effort to add greater certainty to this area of the law, the Probate and Trust Litigation Committee has been working on an appellate rule project. Click here for the latest draft of the proposed appellate rule which is making its way through the appellate rules committee. The current proposal gives probate orders their own separate rule similar to family law orders. If you have any comments to this latest draft, please forward them directly to the sub-committee members working on this important project: Bill Hennessey, Tom Karr, and Sean Kelley.
