Henderson v Wilcox and others

Inheritance – Loss of prospect of inheritance. The Chancery Division dismissed an application by the claimant, who had been found guilty of the manslaughter of his mother, to inherit his mother's estate, as justice did not require modification of the forfeiture rule. However, the court held that the forfeiture rule had no application to any interest presently or in future created under two trusts relating to his mother's home.
