examiner.com: “A Houston jury took less than 40 minutes to return a verdict upholding the last will of philanthropist and oilman Alfred Glassell Jr. The verdict was the result of a lawsuit filed by Curry Glassell in which she alleged that Vinson & Elkins attorneys used undue influence to pressure her father into changing his will to favor the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, a charitable institution which is also a client of the law firm. Glassell was alone in this pursuit with her opposition including not only the museum, but also her father’s widow, her younger brother Alfred Glassell III and the Glassell Family Foundation. The elder Glassell’s last will, signed in 2003, is described as providing individual gifts, a life estate for his widow and then directing the bulk of estate assets to go to the MFAH and the Glassell Family Foundation.”
