Thorpe v. Reed, H037330

Trial court's order awarding a temporary trustee's request for fees is reversed and remanded where the trial court's construction of sections 15642(a) and 17206 is not only contrary to the plain words but also operates to eviscerate the specific statute that limits the compensation of a trustee to the amount fixed by the trust instrument.
