Declaratory Relief and President Trump’s National Emergency
What does Declaratory Relief have in common with Florida Probate litigation?
Declaratory Relief and President Trump’s National Emergency. Hello, my name is John Pankauski, I’m a trust and estate lawyer in West Palm Beach, Florida. On Feb 15th of 2019, President Donald Trump was sued for his declaration of a National Emergency. Now, what does that have in common with Florida Probate litigation. On the surface, initially nothing but one of the first lawsuits that was filed, filed as declaratory relief. Seeking a declaration from the court. That happens a lot in Florida Probate, estate and trust contest. You are asking a court to make a declaration about your rights or about the validity or invalidity of a trust or an estate or a will such as a will contest case. Filling a declaration action in your Florida probate or estate case isn’t that much different from a Federal case involving a National Emergency.
