Gill v Woodall and others [2010] EWCA Civ 1430; [2011] WLR (D) 328

“To determine whether a testatrix knew and approved the contents of her will the proper approach was to consider the factual and expert evidence and to ask whether the testatrix appreciated what was in the will when she signed it. It was not necessary to break down the issue into two separate questions of whether a prima facie case had been made out that the testatrix had not known or approved of the contents of her will and then whether the beneficiary had rebutted that case.”
