Legalese coming out the ears

Daddy and his girls on graduation dayTonight, Daddy was reading Big Sister her favorite story.  He often adds his own unique flavor to stories, but tonight was a little different.

“After he married her stepmother, Cinderella’s father died.  Because Cinderella’s stepmother did not adopt her, Cinderella could still inherit from both her mother’s and her father’s estates under the kingdom’s intestate succession statute.”

Big Sister didn’t get it, but I did.  Sweet honey, you’ll be done studying for the bar exam soon!
