Co-Administrator Has Action Against Agent

One of two co-administrators of an estate has the power to compel an accounting by an agent for the decedent without the consent of the other co-administrator. An action in the Orphans’ Court to recover assets transferred by an agent is equitable and not barred by any statute of limitations, but only by a defense of laches, and the party asserting laches must show that there was prejudice caused by any delay in the filing of the petition. Mahlstadt Estate. No. 2, 10 Fid.Rep.3d 323 (Monroe O.C. 2020).
