Where appellants in a trust dispute challenged trustees’ actions in deducting the cost of the defense of the underlying litigation from appellants’ trust accounts, summary judgment for the defendants is affirmed because a trust provision applied to allow the trustees to charge the accounts for legal fees, the appellants were not deprived of their vested interest in trust assets, and the terms of the trust provided sufficient notice of the transfer of funds.
Judgment is affirmed.
