Dale Trust

Account by Trustee, Request to Ratify Trustee and Trustee Attorney Fees Paid//**The declaration in support of legal services rendered and the Lemus declaration, filed on 7-18-17, support only a fraction of the fees sought. The fees are quite high for a relatively brief administration. The authority to compensate the trustees and attorneys without court approval does not, in and of itself, justify or mandate subsequent court approval of the fees sought. The Petition to replace Boston Private Bank with Fiduciary Trust International is GRANTED. The request for approval of the fees and interrelated approval and ratification of the trust account is DENIED. The account is accepted but the fees cannot be ratified and approved.

Yes

 

**Appearance Optional, However, failure to appear will be viewed as waiver of oral argument and the court may issue an order that differs from the tentative ruling.
