(b) Rectification: Rose v Tomkins  QCA 157.
(c) Construction of wills: Floyd v Floyd & Ors  QDC 198.
(d) Resignation/removal and appointment of SMSF trustees: Perry v Nicholson  QSC 163.
(e) Statutory will applications: Re K’s Statutory Will  NSWSC 1711 (testamentary discretionary trusts, the Court’s function in approving the terms of a statutory will, and costs).
