Today I appeared in the matter of the Estate of Arthur (Artie) Beetson, the former Australian rugby league captain.  Unlike a lot of people who don’t leave a will at all, the problem was that Artie had signed two wills on the same day, both home made will kits, albeit different will kits and therefore different wording.  Both wills appointed the same executor and left the estate to the same beneficiaries.  They were both witnessed by the same two witnesses, who unfortunately were both also deceased.  Justice Peter Lyons admitted both wills to probate.  See the reports in The Australian; Brisbane Times; and The Gold Coast Bulletin.
