There has been a lot of buzz in the legal community recently about the case of Leibel v. Leibel (reported as Leibel v. Lewis), which was decided by the Honourable Justice Greer in August of this year.  The reason for all the legal chatter is that this case clarified whether there is a limitation period on will challenges. It turns out, according to Justice Greer, that the regular two-year limitation period set out in the Limitations Act, 2002 applies equally to will challenges as it does to any other civil litigation.
