Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court decides one today

In Guardianship of E.N., Adult, a 9-page, 5-0 opinion, Justice Boehm writes:

We hold that the guardianship estate planning statute does not authorize dispositions of the protected person’s entire estate. * * *

Conclusion. The guardianship court’s October 14, 2003, Order approving the guardian’s modified estate plan is reversed. This case is remanded with instructions to close the guardianship by reason of E.N.’s death. The disposition of his estate remains a matter for the probate court to consider.
