It's neat to see a case that involves a family bank that was opened way back in 1889 and involves a fight about who currently gets to have control of the bank pursuant to a series of wills from people with the last name of Sefton. It's even cooler when the bank in question is in your home town: here, the San Diego Trust & Savings Bank.
It's undisputed that the Seftons get the bank, but the question is which Seftons and how much. It's a big ticket dispute: the shares that Grandpa Sefton owned are currently worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
