Estate of Pryor, No. B207402
In an appeal involving presumptive disqualification of a care custodian from receiving a donative transfer from a dependent or elder adult, trial court's judgment against the daughter of comedian Richard Pryor and in favor of stepmother is affirmed as there is no support in the language of section 21351(a) or in the legislative history which would make the spousal exception to the presumption of invalidity unavailable to a spouse who allegedly persuaded the transferor to marry through undue influence or fraud.
