Removal of Executor for Conflict Affirmed

The Superior Court has affirmed the removal of an executor for a conflict of interest when the executor had made loans to herself under a power of attorney during the decedent’s lifetime and was a major debtor of the estate.  The court also affirmed the Orphans’ Court’s direction that letters not be granted to the second successor executor named in the will due to a similar conflict and that letters be granted to the third successor, but reversed the appointment of a co-administrator.  Estate of Andrews, 2014 PA Super 110 (5/29/14), affirming Clearfield Co. O.C., No. 1711-0612 (4/4/13).
