Ecton v. Ecton

Ecton v. Ecton, 2013 MT 114 (April 30, 2013) (5-0) (Cotter, J.)

Issue: (1) Whether the district court erred in interpreting Zales Ecton, Jr.’s will requiring IRC § 2032A property to be distributed as part of the residuary estate as requiring a specific devise rather than a devise to the residuary beneficiaries; and (2) whether the district court erred in allowing Zales III to object to the PR’s decision to award the income from the IRC § 2032A property to residuary beneficiaries more than 30 days after the proposed distribution was submitted for approval.

Short Answer: (1) No, and (2) no.
