New Case Filed in Lucom Inheritance Dispute

Law & LawyersA new scandal touches the doors of the Supreme Court. Its epicenter: the First Civil Chamber, composed of Judges Oyden Ortega, Alberto Cigarruista and Harley Mitchell. In the ruling (which ended a fierce tangled legal dispute, and which resulted in the opening of 16 court cases, debated in four countries, in a dispute over the multi million dollar estate left by philanthropist Charles Wilson Lucom, to the poor children of Panama), the three judges have ignored the decision of Lucom in his will. After Lucom's death, the case focused on the open objection lodged by the Arias Piza family (the children of Hilda Piza, who was Lucom's wife for 20 years,) because it left his $50 million dollar inheritance to poor children. The Arias Piza family then filed an appeal to the Civil Chamber that allowed the judges to decide the case, and they gave the inheritance to the family. Now, Mario Velásquez Chizmar, who was the notary of the will, has asked the National Assembly to prosecute the three judges. (La Estrella)
