When a Trust is established, the document will identify the Trustee. The Trustee oversees the administration of the Trust.
Trustees are subject to fiduciary duties. For example, a Trustee is supposed to act in good faith, with reasonable care, foresight and diligence. A Trustee can violate a duty by commingling funds, by improper use of Trust property, or by other wrongful acts.
If a Trustee violates a duty, a petition to remove the Trustee can be filed with the Court. As a result, the Trustee may be required to pay damages and attorney fees.
