Disqualification of Counsel for Former Representation

In an action by the one of executors to compel an accounting by the agents under a power of attorney, the law firm representing the petitioner-executor was disqualified when a principal of the firm had previously represented the decedent and his wife and the interests of the wife were adverse to the petitioner because the challenged actions of the agents benefited the wife.  Whitby Estate, 4 Fid. Rep. 3d 133 (O.C. Montg. 2014), (Opinion by Ott, J.)
