An acrimonious family legal battle continues through the courts as John Clitheroe appeals a High Court’s judgment regarding his mother’s Will.

In June, it was reported that John's sister, Susan Bond, had succeeded in nullifying her mother, Jean Clitheroe's Will allowing Susan to inherit part of Jean's 325,000 estate that Jean had bequeathed to John only.
