Levine v. Stimmel

By Jenna G. Rubin, Esq.

Florida Statutes F.S. 736.1004 provides that in actions for breach of fiduciary duty or challenging a trustee’s exercise (or nonexercise) of their powers, and in trust modification proceedings, the court may award fees as in chancery actions. Here, the Court considered whether F.S. 736.1004 allowed a party to recover fees after unsuccessfully litigating entitlement to fees under F.S. 57.105.
