The Problem of Sloppy Drafting

This one is really too bad…

A testator’s will poured the residue of his estate over to his lifetime trust which directed the trustee to distribute certain parcels of real property to certain persons. However, the parcels were owned by a corporation of which testator was sole shareholder.
That hurts… Too bad his lawyer wasn’t thinking when they drafted his trust and advised him on its funding. Sounds like a nice sized malpractice suit to me.

Thanks to Professor Beyer for this wild one.
