Estate of Moss (California Court of Appeal, Fourth District, Case No. D058547, March 20, 2012)

Holding that service of a will contest pleading on the attorney for the party who filed the earlier petition to probate the will that was being contested was sufficient service as the attorney for the party who filed the petition for probate was that party’s ostensible agent for service of process for the purpose of the contest pleading.  However, the Court also specified that its holding was limited to situations such as in the Estate of Moss case.
