    • Estate of Prince (applying the presumption of paternity to reject claims by persons claiming to be blood relatives of the renowned singer)
    • Aoki v. Aoki (upholding releases of powers of appointment in the estate plan of the founder of the Benihana restaurant chain)
    • Minnesota Life v. Rings (reconciling simultaneous death statutes with language in a beneficiary designation form)
    • Trust of Shire (construing the trust modification provisions of the UTC)
    • Pikula v. Department of Social Services (upholding a discretionary trust as a supplemental needs trust
