Canody v. Hamblin

Canody v. Hamblin

Record No. 170747 Canody v. Hamblin (as published by the Virginia Supreme Court) In a proceeding brought by a daughter for probate of a three-page computer-generated document tendered as the will of her father, the circuit court did not err in considering testimony to establish the testamentary nature of the pages proffered for probate, and did not err in regard to the requirement of the proponent of the will to authenticate all three pages of the document. The trial court properly admitted testimony to refute the claim that the will was fraudulent and correctly declined to adopt a novel and more rigorous standard for admitting a will to probate. The judgment admitting the will to probate is affirmed.
