On June 14, 2018, the Fort Worth Court of Appeals reversed the decision of the Tarrant County Probate Court 2 not to grant a guardianship. In order to protect their daughter after age 18, the parents filed for guardianship of their daughter. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, the parents were denied a guardianship of their disabled daughter. Stephen E. Dubner filed an appeal. The Court of Appeals found that the trial court abused its discretion in denying the guardianship. This is the first case to analyze the 2017 changes to the Estates Code.
