Court: Unsent Text Message Is a Valid Will

A last will and textament? An Australian court has decided that a will found in the drafts folder of a dead man’s phone is valid, even though it was never witnessed or even sent, the BBC reports. The man, a 55-year-old who killed himself a year ago, made it clear that he was unhappy with his wife and he wanted his assets to go to his brother and his nephew. “You and [nephew] keep all that I have house and superannuation, put my ashes in the back garden … [wife] will take her stuff only she’s ok gone back to her ex AGAIN I’m beaten. A bit of cash behind TV and a bit in the bank Cash card pin … My will,” he wrote.
