Attorney’s duty in long-running probate case sent back to trial court for review  (access required)

It’s round four to the widow in the ongoing drama surrounding the estate of former Congressman Floyd D. Spence. The South Carolina Supreme Court last week sent Deborah W. Spence’s action against her former attorney, Kenneth B. Wingate, back to the trial court. Spence is suing Wingate for breach of fiduciary duty arising out of his handling of some of the congressman’s assets, including a $500,000 life insurance policy that was the subject of a Supreme Court decision last week. The case was originally filed in 2004 and has been up and down the court system.
