Whitney Houston's fight in Court is a good lesson for all of us.

With Ms. Houston's newly admission to being in rehab, she still has another hurdle to overcome and that is her all out lawsuit in regards with her deceased dad's wife. What could she possibly be suing for you may ask? Well she has a million reasons, that is to say a million dollar life insurance policy that her dad name her on his life insurance policy. Now Whitney and her step mom, Barbara Houston are in a very heated court battle. John Houston, had put Whitney as the sole beneficiary of this huge insurance policy. But her step mom is now crying foul saying it was really meant for her. To say there is no love loss between Whitney and Barbara would be an exaggeration. It all started when John had divorced Whitney's mom and married his previous maid. The lawsuit is now in the Court of Appeals when Whitney received a huge win from the United States District Court in the District of New Jersey at the end of 2010. It was the judgment of the court to agree in Whitney's favor and had totally thrown out Barbara’s lawsuit completely. What reasoning did the Judge give for throwing out the suit completely in favor of Whitney? In a nutshell he felt the case was to weak because there was nothing in writing to prove how Whitney's dad wanted the insurance money to be used for. So the morale of the story is you should only name a person as beneficiary for an insurance policy or annuity if you wish them to keep that money. Most people think just because they let their wished known verbally that they will be carried out after they pass. Don't fall into this pitfall.
