New Wrongful Death Case

The Tennessee Court of Appeals just issued its opinion in Rickman v. Rickman, No. M2013-00251-COA-R3-CV (Tenn. Ct. App. Oct. 14, 2013).  The summary of the opinion states as follows:
This case concerns whether the widow of a deceased man may share in the wrongful death settlement obtained by his personal representative. We conclude that the postnuptial agreement entered into by the widow prevents her from benefitting from the wrongful death settlement. Affirmed and remanded.
Here's a link to the opinion:
