Dismissal of Answer and New Matter for Lack of Standing Is Not Appealable

In an action relating to the account of a trustee of an irrrevocable trust and the approval of a settlement agreement, the order of the Orphans’ Court sustaining preliminary objections to an answer and new matter filed by the settlor of the trust, finding that the settlor had no standing, was not a final order and was not otherwise appealable. In re: Trust of John S. Middleton dated July 26, 1996, ___ A.3d ___, 2024 PA Super 54 (3/25/2024), quashing appeal from 12 Fid.Rep.3d 543 (Montgomery O.C. 2022) (see “Settlor Lacked Standing in Litigation over Trusts” and “Dismissal of Answer and New Matter Is Not Appealable“).
