This week Jackson J admitted a video recording to probate, made by the deceased and comprising a file on his personal computer.

In it, the deceased said “My girlfriend would like me to do a will before I pick up my motorcycle. As I am too lazy, I’ll just say it… I’ll fill out the damn forms later.”

His Honour was satisfied that the recording satisfied the three limbs of the test for an informal will to be admitted to probate.
