I'm sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, a power of attorney does not survive the death of the person who executed it. Please consult with an experienced Arizona attorney about what you need to do to carry on the litigation in your husband's name. Good luck to you.
This information is presented as a public service. It should not be construed to be formal legal advice nor considered to be the formation of a lawyer/client relationship. I am licensed in Connecticut and New York and my answers are based upon the law in those jurisdictions. My answer to any specific question would likely be different if I were to review a client's file and have the opportunity to interview the client. Accordingly, I strongly urge you to retain an attorney in your jurisdiction with respect to any legal matter.
I'm sorry for your loss. Depending on where you are in the process of suing your former tenants, you may be able to file notice of your husband's passing with the court along with your intent to continue on your own.
This does not constitute legal advice as it pertains directly to you, but rather it is to be seen as general advice only. We do not have an attorney-client relationship, I do not represent you, therefore I am unable to give you specific directives or legal advice.
