APPEALS: Failure to join indispensable party and dismissal of appeal (administrator of estate in her representative and individual capacity)
Administratrix of husband’s estate brought action concerning a property boundary in her capacity as Adm’x. CA dismissed, holding that she had no interest in the property in that capacity (as property passes directly to heirs at law or beneficiaries in will, not thru estate); also, seeing as how she held the property as tenant in common with husband, she herself was an indispensable party to appeal.
