Ledger Wins, Oscar to be Held in Trust

Here is a quick update on my last post -- Heath Ledger won a posthumous Oscar for his performance in the movie Dark Knight. It appears that the statuette will be held in a trust, for his daughter, until she is 18. At that point she'll be old enough to sign a contract with the Academy promising to sell it back to them first, for $1, before selling it elsewhere.

Thanks to the Wills, Trusts & Estates Prof. Blog for this update.
