While delays may occur when beneficiaries get into disputes or other related litigation, that canít explain away 26 years. The judges on the case had the responsibility to solve the problems and settle the dispute.

Why didnít they? Well, only they know for sure, but one is left wondering who did benefit from the dispute and litigation besides the lawyers?

i'm sure this was not the intent of mr d'addario......was there a will?

The 162 millions were not all in cash. Very little was in cash which the many lawyers got.
