Writer Gore Vidal died more than a year ago, and according to his will, he left his estate to Harvard University.

His family, however, says he was senile and in no state of mind to make legal decisions when he drafted his last will. Take Two's Alex Cohen speaks about the case with Tim Teeman, author of "In Bed With Gore Vidal."
