Niece Not Named in Prior Wills Did Not Have Standing to Contest Later Will

The niece of the decedent did not have standing to contest the will of the decedent because she was not named as a beneficiary in the two previous wills of the decedent and was named only as a co-executor in the earliest will, which does not confer standing. Netzel Estate, 1 Fid.Rep.4th 223 (Allegheny O.C. 2022), aff’d, 984 WDA 2022 (Pa. Super. 8/11/2023) (non-precedential) (see “Executor under Prior Will Lacked Standing in Will Contest“).
