Appellate Jurisdiction


The appellate court dismissed an appeal of a trial court’s admission of a will to probate because the contestant’s “claims may logically be considered part of the phase to admit the will, and trial court has not disposed of all the [contestant’s] issues.” Id. at 1. In addition, there is no statute authorizing an interlocutory appeal of this type of case.


Moral:  Until the trial court disposes of all of a will contestant’s issues, the trial court’s order admitting a will to probate is not appealable.
