Morrow v. Morrow

Oklahoma Court of Appeals
612 P.2d 730 (1980)


Warren and Betty Morrow (plaintiffs) brought suit against Warren’s sibling, Woodye Morrow and Woodye’s son, Dennis M. Morrow (defendants). According to the plaintiffs, Woodye agreed that, if the plaintiffs cared for Warren and Woodye’s ailing mother, Woodye would sell certain mineral interests upon the mother’s death to pay the plaintiffs for their services and then divide the remainder among the mother’s heirs. Woodye instead conveyed the mineral rights to Dennis. The plaintiffs sought to recover for their services and to set aside the conveyance of the mineral interests to Dennis. The District Court ruled against the plaintiffs on their claim for services, but ordered the mineral conveyance to be set aside and the proceeds to be distributed evenly among the mother’s heirs. The plaintiffs appealed.
