Succession of Tiffany Arthur, No. 20-CA-75 (La. App. 5 Cir., May 27, 2020)
The Fifth Circuit upheld the decision of the Trial Court, 24th Judicial District Court, that found in favor of the Defendant, a Trustee, that the Trustee need not deliver funds to a Succession Representative, where a Testamentary Trust provided that a minor child's interest in the trust had not terminated, but, even if the interest in Trust had terminated, the Trustee was still directed to deposit such funds in a Minor's account. Christie Tournet, as Co-Counsel with a colleague, successfully represented the Defendant-Trustee at the trial and appellate levels.
