Otter Tail County District Court, Hon. Thomas M. Stringer.
I. A district court may not approve an agreement to settle a will contest under Minn. Stat. § 524.3-1102 (2004) if the agreement is not signed by all persons who have a beneficial interest and all persons who have a claim that will or may be affected by the agreement.
II. A district court does not abuse its discretion by concluding that an adult child who received infrequent and inconsistent loans from a decedent does not qualify for a family allowance under Minn. Stat. § 524.4-404 (2004).
Affirmed in part, reversed in part. Judge Kevin G. Ross.
