Cal Law Trends and Developments

Trusts and Estates


During the period covered by this review little in the way of trends or departures differing from established positions seems to have appeared; there is much repetition and emphasis of "black-letter law." There are, however, in several cases unusual factual patterns which are of interest. The results of these cases, interesting and of course contributing to the normal growth of case law, seem to flow naturally and quite easily from principles long-established and accepted, not departing from what could be expected. There were several statutory changes, prominent among which were the Revised Uniform Principal and Income Act, effective July 1, 1968, as well as statutory provisions which are applicable in estates where allocation and apportionment problems are not troublesome.
