Case Caption: The Estate of Ralph A. George, Deceased (Appellant) vs. Floretta J. George (AppelleeCase Number: S. Ct. Civ. No. 2007-124Date: 09/05/2008Author: Per CuriamCitation: Summary:

Appellant, the Estate of Ralph A. George (hereafter "the Estate"), appeals the October 25, 2007 Superior Court order denying its Motion for Declaratory Judgment Against Floretta J. George. The Estate asks this Court to hold that the probate court lacked the authority to grant Appellee, Floretta J. George (hereafter "Mrs. George" or "the widow"), spousal support and rent-free possession of the marital home for more than one year. Mrs. George, on the other hand, argues that this appeal is a "back door attempt to appeal Orders that [the Estate] not only honored but did nothing to contest until seven years after they were entered." (Appellee's Br. 9.) In essence, she contends that this is an improper interlocutory appeal. For the reasons which follow, we will dismiss this appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
