    A letter from a lawyer can sometimes be intimidating and frequently contain threatening language. If you are a creditor, you do have certain rights in each state. The rights may be subject to time limitations. An estate may also have the right to seek recovery against frivolous claims.

    Some of the facts are not clear. However, for taking property that does not belong to her, she can be sued for conversion, there may be other causes of action as well.

This assumes your mother can prove the representation regarding the sale from the former employee and that there was detrimental reliance.

    I cannot find the background to this question. However it appears that you are asking if a life estate confers full ownership after you die. If you provided a life estate for your own life, then that is all you conferred. A life estate is a "split interest" so the future interest, whoever owns it, would have to confer that separately.

  5. There were factual errors in judge's decision

    One of the roles a Judge must play is to be a "finder of fact." If one side has a set of facts that is different from the other side, the Judge has to decide who is correct. Before the judge makes a decision, there is generally a process of learning which facts are agreed upon by both sides and what issues are in contention. You should evaluate this document to see if the facts you indicated were agreed upon. After a Judge decides an issue, if the factual errors are agreed upon by...
