A petition to refuse a notice of claim that was filed under 20 Pa.C.S. § 3532 more than one year after the first advertisement of the grant of letters was granted and the notice of claim was refused. Martin Estate, 11 Fid.Rep.3d 179 (Adams O.C. 2021).
[DBE Commient: It is not clear whether this decision is based on a misreading of § 3532(b)(1) or if the description of the factual circumstances is incomplete, because § 3532(b)(1) does not bar the filing of a claim more than one year after the first advertisement of the grant of letters but only bars claims against the personal representative or beneficiaries for personal property that has been distributed. The decision does not say whether the estate was already distributed, and the court’s descriptions of § 3532 seem to be inaccurate.]
