Civil contempt and the wayward trustee
Posted by Lynne Butler
Here is yet another story about an executor who chose not to follow the rules, including court orders directing him to pass his accounts. Yes, he ended up in jail for refusing to pass his accounts, but this article by Jason de Vries of http://www.allaboutestates.ca/ describes what the beneficiaries had to go through to achieve that. It sure takes persistence to bring some of these wayward executors to heel.
