Lawsuit against “Estate” Was Nullity

Legal action cannot be filed against the “estate” of a decedent, but only the personal representatives of the estate, and so an action filed against an estate is a nullity and a personal representative of the estate cannot be substituted as the defendant after the statute of limitations has expired.  Wilkinson v. Knight, 7 Fid.Rep.3d 336 (Crawford Co. C.P. 2017).
