09‑0344 THOMAS BENNETT, EXECUTOR OF THE ESTATE OF MYRTLE BENNETT, DECEASED v.
ARCHIE SEALS, INDEPENDENT EXECUTOR OF THE ESTATE OF JULIA MAE WARNER THOMPSON,
DECEASED; from Austin County; 1st district (01-08-00079-CV, ___ SW3d ___, 02‑05‑09)(Will
Appellant, Thomas Bennett, independent executor of the estate of Myrtle Bennett, challenges the trial
court's order admitting to probate a will of Julia Mae Warner Thompson executed in 2006 (the "2006
will") and the trial court's final judgment entered after a jury trial in favor of appellee, Archie Seals,
independent executor of the estate of Julia Mae Warner Thompson. In a single issue, Bennett
contends that the trial court erred in admitting the 2006 will to probate and in entering the final
judgment on Bennett's will contest "due to the fact that an application to probate a competing will [had
been] filed before" the trial court had held its hearing on Seals's application to probate the 2006 will.
