How Could I Dance With Another, When I Saw No Standing There?..6
Barefoot v. Jennings demonstrated the limitation on standing provided in Probate Code section 17200. While many in the trust litigation bar were, and still are, taken by surprise by the Court’s ruling (which is before the California Supreme Court), the author concludes that perhaps practitioners should not have been surprised. This article draws attention to systemic limitations on standing and, as discussed in the Barefoot opinion, suggests workarounds by which to proceed.

Brief Survey of Western States’ Laws Relevant to California Estate Planners…………………………………………………………………14
California estate planning practitioners often need to address matters arising in other states. Sometimes a client has moved from another state, is moving to another state, or owns property in another state. Because of geographic proximity, multi-jurisdictional issues frequently involve the laws of Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. This article provides a brief survey of the laws in these states.
