Slight Slowdown in the Issuance of Delaware Trust and Estates Opinions

Delaware Fiduciary Litigation Blog

Posted April 17, 2017

       If you have been wondering why the blog has been less active recently, it is not because we have lost interest or care less about informing our readers. It is simply due to the relative dearth of recent Delaware estate and trust opinions.

       Since we started this blog in early 2013, there has been an average of approximately two written Delaware trust or estate opinions issued each month. However, over the last seven months, there have only been a total of four written opinions of which we are aware. We don’t derive any significance from this blip in the written opinion numbers. From reviewing the daily case filings in Chancery, we think the new trust and estate case filings appear steady and that the number of written opinions will likely increase in the near future such that it is more in line with previous numbers.
