A: Just making sure I understand the question: are you asking if you can sue your brother-in-law for failing to inform you that your sister was ill and later died?

Well, you can sue anyone for anything, even if the lawsuit is frivolous and has no chance of success. But I don't see how there is a viable lawsuit here against your brother-in-law.
