Fifty-two-year-old Heather Ilott, who was an only child, was apparently rejected by her mother after leaving home at the age of 17 and getting married. Her mother left her out of her will and instead bequeathed her whole estate, worth around £486,000, to a number of animal charities.
When her mother died in 2004, Mrs Ilott challenged the will in the district court and was awarded £50,000 after the judge found that her mother had acted “unreasonably” in excluding her daughter from her will.
She appealed against this decision in the hope of receiving more money; however the High Court has now ruled that the decision of the district judge was correct.
