Settlor Lacked Standing in Litigation over Trust

The settlor of an irrevocable trust, who retained no interests in the trust, did not have standing to participate in proceedings regarding the account filed by, and possible removal of, the trustee, and the decision upholding preliminary objections to dismiss the settlor’s pleadings was not a final or appealable order. Middleton Trust, 12 Fid.Rep.3d 478 (Montgomery O.C. 2022); 12 Fid.Rep.3d 543 (2022).

[Note: The two opinions are similar, but not identical, and it is not clear why two opinions were issued only about a month apart.]
