No, that is well past the 120 day limit from when the will is admitted to probate for it to be contested. So there is no legal way to contest a will that old once it has been probated and the estate assets distributed and the estate closed.

.

Someone who wants to contest a will has to do so in a timely manner or they lose that right.
