Removal of Trustee Reversed on Appeal

KDG's client and his brother are successor trustees of their mother's trust. They disagreed over trust administration, and sought the court's intervention on specific items, but the trial court decided (on its own) to remove KDG's client as a trustee. The court of appeal agreed with KDG's client that the removal was in excess of the court's power. The appeal was led by KDG attorneys Catherine E. Bennett, Joseph D. Hughes, and Kurt D. Van Sciver. Tinsley v. Tinsley, reversed, unpublished opinion, 2011 WL 1491079.
