A man requested that an attorney, the trustee of his deceased mother’s trust, terminate the trust. The attorney refused and the man sought immediate action against him, but Cobb Superior Court supported the attorney and denied the termination. The man appealed, believing that the trial court did not properly examine the evidence.
Georgia’s Court of Appeals reviewed the case and discovered that the terms of the trust were met. The deceased mother stated in the trust that it should continue until the youngest named person reached the age of 27, and all of her beneficiaries met that requirement at the time of her death. The Court reversed the trial court’s decision, granting the conclusion of the trust.
