Lingo v. Lingo, 713, 2009

In plaintiff's appeal from the court of chancery's order of restitution from and requiring his sister, to return funds she misappropriated as their mother's attorney-in-fact, the order is affirmed where restitution adequately restored the amount of the loss and the remedy of equitable forfeiture would have conflicted with the mother's testamentary intent.
