Internet Lawyer: Jinky and the Frozen Fischer

Chess grandmaster Bobby Fischer was a weird duck until he kicked the bucket two years ago and was buried in Iceland. But they just dug Fischer’s frozen corpse up for DNA testing. Even to an Internet lawyer like me, that’s just damn strange.

Why the DNA test?

There’s a Filipino woman who claims that Fischer engaged in some hanky panky with her and now there’s a daughter named Jinky.

Because Fischer didn’t leave a will, Jinky stands to inherit his estate if the DNA tests prove Fischer was her dad.

Fischer could have prevented this simply by putting the right legal documents in place before he died. Instead, he didn’t get to rest in peace.

Best wishes,
