David Kluft, of Foley Hoag, writes about the risk of defamation and/or testamentary libel stemming from using your Will to getting in the last word.  His article begins as follows:

Halloween is a good time to think about how you want to die. Do you want to leave the world peacefully? Or do you want to go down trash talking, making sure that your enemies know exactly what you think about them, and that everyone else knows what terrible people these enemies were?
