Laycock v. Hammer, D046422

Summary judgment for a trustee on her probate petition seeking a declaration that the proceeds of the life insurance policy were exempt from a judgment creditor's claim is affirmed where, under well established precedent, once a decedent transferred the policy at issue to a trust, he no longer had any ownership interest in the policy and it was not subject to the claims of his creditors.
