Jury Trial
 
Jury trials in the Orphans’ Court are available as a matter of right only in cases involving a substantial dispute concerning decedent’s title to property or determination of incapacity. See PEF Code §§777(a) and (b). The Court, in its discretion, may grant a jury trial in will contests and other matters. Verdicts in such matters, however, are advisory only. See PEF Code §777(c); Phila.O.C. Rule 10.2.D; see also Chapter 1.
