U.S. Supreme Court

Hawaiian Trust Co., Ltd. v. Von Holt, 216 U.S. 367 (1910)

Hawaiian Trust Co., Ltd. v. Von Holt

Nos. 106, 107

Argued January 26, 1910

Decided February 21, 1910

216 U.S. 367


A provision that a definite amount of net income be paid by trustees to the widow does not entitle her to income from the death of the testator, but only from after the executors have been discharged and the property turned over to the trustees.

This rule applies even if, after acceptance by the widow of the provision in lieu of dower, it appears that the provision is not as advantageous to her as though she elected to take her dower.

In considering whether a provision in a will is as advantageous as dower interest, the fact that the widow is an executor and receives commissions may be considered.

18 Haw. 34, 342, affirmed.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
