ELIZABETH BARRETT-ANDERSON SETS NEW PRECEDENT FOR DLM TO SKIRT THE LAW


AnonymousApril 1, 2016 at 7:03 AM
Judicial economy is nothing new...it's the whole foundation for plea agreements and civil settlements. But in this case, the law is prescriptive and even if a settlement could be reached after documents were filed, it would at least be under the purview of a judge who would presumably ensure the settlement was fair and just.

If Tim is right that local law regards a corporation sole as a trustee, then there is some question as to whether a petition filed in court would have given greater consideration to the question of whether the trustee was acting in the best interest of his beneficiaries. Instead, this backroom deal provided no venue for the beneficiaries to contest the trustees actions. One would presume this is precisely the kind of scenario the law was designed to protect against. Too bad.

So based on the press release, it doesn't' t really take any real effort for DLM to skirt the law. This sets a precedent now for them to run amok making title corrections without proper oversight. Banks and others who rely on title certificates to conduct business beware.
