Minn. Stat. 524.3-804/806 Petition to Allow Disallowed Claim Must be Filed in Two Months

In the Matter of the Estate of: Prince Rogers Nelson, Decedent, A17-0927 filed March 5, 2017 (Minn.App. 2018). Prince died on April 21, 2016. A Florida law firm filed a claim for an amount of just shy of $600,000. The claim was for services rendered dating back to 2007 and filed 5 months after his death by sending a certified letter to the special administrator. On October 27, 2016 the law firm received a notice of disallowance that stated “Your claim will be barred unless you file a petition for allowance with the Court or commence a proceeding against the Special Administrator no later than two months after the mailing of this notice to you.” On December 6, 2016 the law firm filed a claim with the district court. The law firm finally filed a petition for allowance of the claim on February 8, 2017. The law firm did not petition to extend the time to file the claim and did not file the petition to allow the claim within the 2 month time limit. The claim was denied as untimely.
