Administration of Estates Generally

ORS 114.295
Discharge or devise in will of claim of testator

The discharge or devise in a will of a claim of the testator against a personal representative or against any other person is of no effect as against creditors of the decedent. The claim shall be included in the inventory and for purposes of administration shall be regarded and treated as a specific devise of the amount of the claim. [1969 c.591 §126]
§§ 114.255 to 114.435

Notes of Decisions

Where ORS 30.070 grants personal representative "full power" to settle wrongful death claim with approval of probate court and does not require notice to beneficiaries or grant them right to intervene in proceeding to approve settlement but only to be heard as matter of right regarding allocation of proceeds, if personal representative breached fiduciary duty, beneficiaries have remedy under ORS 114.395 and 114.405. Hughes v. White, 41 Or App 439, 599 P2d 1147 (1979), aff'd 289 Or 13, 609 P2d 365 (1980)
