Young v. McCoy (Cal. Ct. App. - Feb. 21, 2007)

Wait. Let me see if I get this right.

Brother A shoots Brother B in the home of Mother. Brother A is promptly convicted of attempted premeditated murder of Brother B and sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Mother then creates a testamentary trust which leaves everything to . . . . Brother A?! The attempted murderer of her son?! And not only cuts Brother B out of the will, but also orders the trustee never to let Brother B into her home again?!

Wow. I guess the rich are better than us.
