Where There's a Will, There's a ... Tablet?

Where There's a Will, There's a ... Tablet?

An Ohio judge has approved for probate a Will reportedly written on a tablet computer.  Although accomplished without the traditional benefit of paper and ink, the Will was written, signed, and witnessed, thus meeting the legal requirements set forth in Ohio law. 

Javier Castro, the testator, had apparently signed the Will in the midst of being transferred for treatment at the Cleveland Clinic.  Castro's brother had transcribed his wishes onto the tablet earlier while the two discussed his testamentary wishes.

Judge James Walther urged the Ohio legislature to take a look at the increasing prevalence of tablet computers and their increased use to create and memorialize legal agreements.
