Abstract

"Sometimes a lack of clarity about a donor’s intent can create legal hassles after a founder dies. The couple’s wishes should be viewed as aspirational rather than as a binding document," said Lloyd Mayer, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame Law School who spoke generally about statements of donor intent and had not seen the Moore document.
