|I was never told why I was to appear, despite asking the lawyer who originally asked and the E&O law firm who told me to go voluntarily. I asked if a copy of my journal would suffice and was simply told 'no...you have to testify'. To what?|
After I testified (5 minutes on stand-nobody was interested in my Journal) and was walked out of court by the defendant's lawyer, he told me the Will was being contested and I just 'made his defendant's case'. It was an 'interesting' day that cost me 3 hours time & $25 in gas to get there & back home. But I was compensated for my state-mandated IRS mileage rate--$30. Never heard another word about it until I got the 'burning limits' e-mail.
I'm sure there's a lesson in here somewhere--just not sure what it is. LOL
