Trusts and Estates — personal representative — removal

Lori A. Laatsch appeals the order that removed her as personal representative and trustee of the Estate of Rebecca R. Derzon. She argues that the trial court erroneously exercised its discretion by: (1) removing her as personal representative and trustee; (2) removing the law firm she hired to probate the Estate; (3) appointing a court-selected Special Administrator and Special Trustee instead of Laatsch’s ex-husband or Laatsch’s accountant, whom the Will named as successor personal representatives and trustees; and (4) ordering the Estate to turn over all Estate-related documents to the minor beneficiaries’ lawyer. Publication in the official reports is not recommended.
