DilemmaAbout a year ago, you addressed complications in a will.  You wrote that when a charity is named in the will but family heirs or others don’t like that fact, a charity has a right, an obligation really, to fight for its interests.  We’ve run into this situation and don’t know how to proceed.  Our attorneys say we have a right to sue, but my boss feels it would be untoward to sue a donor’s estate because of the potential bad publicity.  Should we fight those who are contesting the will?
