Rachins v. Minassian

By Jenna G. Rubin, Esq.

Subsequent to the Minassian v. Rachins decision, described here, the Court was once again faced with the interpretation of the Zaven Minassian Trust Agreement.  This time, the issue was whether the decedent’s children had standing to contest the surviving spouse’s administration of a trust for their benefit, where the terms of the trust provide that upon the spouse’s death, the trust terminates, and the remaining assets are distributed to new trusts for the children’s benefit.
