Topic: What You Cannot See Can Hurt You: Advising Clients on Digital Assets
Digital assets are now a “thing” that clients need to include in their estate plan. The Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts (Ajemian v. Yahoo!) recently ruled that personal representatives may provide lawful consent on behalf of a decedent to release the contents of online user accounts. Recently, Yahoo! petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court for a Writ of Certiorari, appealing this decision. Until the dust settles, what can practitioners do? This one-hour presentation will walk practitioners through RevUFADAA and provide tips on how to assist clients with digital assets in their planning documents and in probate.
