B.C. court overturns man's last will
A B.C. Supreme Court judge overturned a man's last will and testament Tuesday because he says a will must be based on “contemporary moral standards.”Contemporary moral standards? Give me a friggin break! No judge should be able to overturn a will because someone objects to the terms set out in the will. This judge has overstepped the bounds and dictated HIS OWN morals on his ruling. He should be taken before a review board and stripped of his "judgeship", as he has clearly exposed his bias in this case.
In his ruling, Judge Randall Wong decided to overturn Werbenuk's will due to the financial need of the daughters, combined with the "treatment of his daughters during his lifetime and the irrational and untrue nature of the reasons" for not including them in his will in the first place.This judge is totally out of line. Financial needs of the daughters? Maybe that is why Werbenuk didn't want his daughters getting any of his hard earned money. If they were freeloaders and did nothing to help their father, why do they deserve even one penny of his money? Dang, Liberal judges are ruining our country.
My Grandfather left everything to his oldest son. He gave one section of land to his youngest son, and my Mother got nothing. It was the tradition at the time, but it still hurts my Mom. Much as it still hurts, it was his will. Period. I know he is up in heaven now kicking himself for what he did to my Mom, but it was a legal will and no judge should be able to overturn it because it was not up to "contemporary moral standards". This decision needs to go to a higher court because a huge pandora's box has been opened by this judge. My will should be upheld as long as it was properly notarized. Period. It is my WILL, not the judges will.
No judge should be able to overrule or change a law because he/she doesn't like it. That is absurd, it can not be allowed to stand. If I want everything I own to go to my favorite dog, the law should uphold my wishes and no judge should be allowed to overrule it, no matter how loudly my kids yap about it.
