Erroneous Distributions and Dilatory Conduct

Estate distribution was erroneous because share of charitable beneficiary was reduced by inheritance tax paid, and noncharitable beneficiaries were required to return the excess distributions in accordance with the indemnification agreements they signed at the time of the initial distributions.  Executor commissions and legal fees were both reduced, and legal fees were awarded in favor of the Attorney General, and against counsel to the executor, for excess time expended by the Attorney General due the dilatory conduct of counsel.  Shilling Estate, 4 Fid.Rep.3d 8 (Adams Co. O.C. 2014)
