Venue is likely Idaho.
Under what authority or condition would a stipulation of a will be considered contested?
Will Contest. If any person shall for any reason or in any manner whatever, directly or indirectly, contest this Will in whole or in part on any ground whatever, or oppose or object to any of the provisions hereof, or seek to invalidate any such provisions, or shall seek or endeavor to succeed to my estate or any part thereof otherwise than through this Will, then I direct that such person shall neither take nor receive anything from my estate and any gift, bequest, devise or other interest in my estate to which such person would otherwise be entitled by virtue of the provisions of this Will or law, such gift, bequest, devise or other interest in my estate shall stand revoked and be cancelled and rendered void and of no effect whatever; and I give, devise and bequeath such gift, bequest, devise or other interest in my estate to those who would be entitled thereto under this Will had such person predeceased me.
What I am wondering is whom is the authority that decides if the Will is being contested? Could an executor of the will decide this? Does a judge need to decide this? Or if someone wants to make that accusation that's when we get injunctions and lawyer up?
