Harvey Greenfield was a plaintiffs’ securities class action lawyer who passed away in 2002. A proud alumnus of Harvard Law School, Greenfield indicated to people that he planned to leave the bulk of his $35 million estate to the school. But a year after Greenfield’s death, his will cannot be located and there is an ongoing battle between Harvard and his sole living heir over who will receive the money. The August 20, 2003 edition of the New York Law Journal contains an article (via law.com – free registration required) discussing Greenfield (including his famously abrasive dealings with other lawyers) and the legal contest over his estate.
