PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - Attorneys say a fired Portsmouth police officer will not appeal after being stripped of most of a $2 million inheritance from a woman’s disputed will.

The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1WfsB0w ) the judge said Monday it hasn’t been determined if Geraldine Webber’s 2009 will should stand. He dismissed her 2012 will and trust last month, saying former police Sgt. Aaron Goodwin acted on Webber’s “fears and hopes” to extract her inheritance, which included a waterfront home, Cadillac, stocks and bonds.

Webber’s 2009 will left $240,000 to a Massachusetts high school for a scholarship in memory of her son and money to 12 of her friends. It also designated a quarter of the balance of her estate to a cancer research clinic, a burn center, and the Portsmouth fire and police departments.
