Woodward v. Woodward

By Jenna G. Rubin

This decision deals with whether res judicata and laches barred a beneficiary’s claim against a trustee. The Court held that neither applied, since the beneficiary’s two claims against the trustee did not contain identity of the causes of action, and because the beneficiary did not know about the trustee’s actions until he was served with an accounting.
