Conveyance of Real Estate Set Aside for Self-Dealing

The Orphans’ Court had the power to set aside a conveyance of real estate by the executor after his removal from office as a remedy for self-dealing, and not a surcharge, and under the doctrine of “the law of the case,” the appellate court would not reconsider its holding in a prior appeal that the executor had engaged in self-dealing. In re: Estate of Angela DiMatteo, 363 WDA 2022 (Pa. Super. 2/22/2023), (non-precedential).
