Evidence of Undue Influence Barred; Fraud and Forgery not Proven

On an appeal from probate, petitioner failed to answer discovery requests and was sanctioned by being barred from introducing evidence of undue influence or lack of capacity. For the remaining allegations of fraud and forgery, the petitioner did not present any evidence that the decedent was tricked into signing the will, and the only evidence of forgery was the opinion of a document examiner, which was contradicted by the testimony of the lawyers who witnessed the decedent sign the will. Gallo Estate, 10 Fid.Rep.3d 357 (Monroe O.C. 2020).
