Insane Delusion Law and Legal Definition
Insane delusion is a false sense of reality. Insane delusion is considered as a common law tradition used to describe a false conception of reality that a testator of a will adheres to against all reason and evidence on the contrary. The will made out of a state of insane delusion will be considered as void.
Following is an example of a case defining insane delusion:
An insane delusion is an irrational belief. Where a testatrix has some actual grounds for the belief which she has, though regarded by others as wholly insufficient, the mere misapprehension of the facts or unreasonable and extravagant conclusions drawn there from do not establish the existence of such a delusion as will invalidate her will.[re Estate of Bonjean, 90 Ill. App. 3d 582, 584 (Ill. App. Ct. 3d Dist. 1980)].
