Antiques Roadshow

If you are looking for something in addition to the Supreme Court news, check out this New York Times article about an under-theorized aspect of estates and trust law: the pesky personal property that people would have preferred not to inherit, but still can’t quite bring themselves to throw away. The comments (195 as of this writing) are particularly rich, with all sorts of vignettes about the objects with which people find themselves stuck, painful conversations between siblings, and (of course) the wrongdoings of stepparents and half-siblings.
