A state judge has awarded most of a woman's estate to the foundation that supports Southeastern Louisiana University, finding that the woman's final will -- which left the money elsewhere -- was invalid, The Advocate reported. The judge backed evidence presented by the college that the woman didn't understand the last will, just before her death. Family members who benefited from the final will in turn charged that the university had showered attention on the woman to get her to set up the bequest that will now stand. The estate is worth about $380,000.
