‘The defendant’s fraud is not falsely to induce the testator to make a gift in the defendant’s favour, nor to refuse to comply with his promise to the testator, but to cheat the testator’s intended donees of their intended benefits’.
About Legal Case Notes
Legal Case Notes is the leading database of case notes from the courts of England & Wales. Court judgments are generally lengthy and difficult to understand. Lawyers rely on case notes - summaries of the judgments - to save time. I have written over 600 high quality case notes, covering every aspect of English law. These are available on the site in clear, indexed form.
