In Re Prindle (Cal. Ct. App. - April 20, 2009)

Guess what sort of opinion contains the following description of the underlying facts: "In May 2002, Darrel Prindle entered the home of Angela Prindle, his estranged wife. He shot and killed Angela. He also shot Angela's sister (Jessica Harris) and Jessica's daughter (Crystal Perkins)."

Is it:

(A) A death penalty case;

(B) A criminal (e.g, 25-to life) case;

(C) A tax case; or

(D) A probate case.

All of the above are, of course, possible. The correct answer is nonetheless (D). Of all things. (No fair, by the way, if you intuited the right answer via the caption.)
