Case Date Legal Subject Abstract
Orr v. Paterson, and Others 1773 Competent This case was about a testator's mental capacity to execute a series of deeds. Orr, the pursuer, asked the court to set aside three deeds that John Logan executed in favor of his wife, his nephew, and another individual. Orr alleged that Logan was not of sound mind when he executed the deeds. The defenders claimed that while Logan showed certain symptoms of old age, his mental capacity was not impaired.
