Will a Shopping List Do?

A former mayor of Schenectady, New York, is embroiled in a legal dispute with an 86-year-old woman over the $680,970 estate of the woman's late uncle.

Frank Duci says a will was dictated to him by Walter Sengenberger shortly before his death in 2003. It's hard to understand why the authenticity of the document was ever doubted.

The attorney general's office has raised questions about the validity of the will, which Duci wrote on a blank shopping list taken from his wife's purse and then had Sengenberger sign with an "X" because the 84-year-old General Electric retiree was too weak to write his own name. [Link]
