Leona Helmsley's will left twelve million dollars to her bitey little dog, Trouble. However, the New York Post reports that her grandchildren and the AG's office has succeeded in getting a judge to approve a deal whereby ten million of that will go instead to Helmsley's charitable foundation.
Aiding the settlement process: an affidavit from the dog's caretaker that the dog can subsist on two mil a year.
Sounds like someone could really use a morals tutor.
Another defeat for donor intent. Martin Wooster will be outraged. It is not what the dog, much less the world, needs; it is what Leona intended that matters. This is another clear cut case of the Liberals retroactively revising a binding legal agreement. Trexler as an attorney should know better than to wink at it.
