>Chatard v. Oveross (California Courts of Appeal, Nov. 30, 2009).

Holding that the beneficiaries of a trust were entitled to charge the share in the trust of another beneficiary who was also the trustee where the beneficiary/trustee was found liable for breach of her trustee duties, and that a spendthrift clause in the trust, stating that the interest of a beneficiary in the trust could not be subject to that beneficiary’s creditors, did not prohibit the surcharge where the trust did not contain language that indicated that the trustors would have wanted to insulate the beneficiary/trustee’s share in the trust if she breached her trustee duties.
