California recognizes the tort of intentional interference with expected inheritance. (Beckwith v. Dahl (2012) 205 Cal.App.4th 1039, 1050-1056.)  There are six elements to the tort.  Here, substantial evidence supported the trial court’s findings that each of the elements was satisfied.  The decedent’s wife had reason to expect an inheritance from her husband, who had consulted his probate attorney about changing his revocable trust to provide for his wife in case of his death.  His daughter physically prevented the attorney from meeting with the decedent to finalize and sign the intended amendment to the trust.
