Where a co-trustee challenged a probate court judgment allowing income distribution to the grantor’s grandson, the court improperly interpreted the trust as it related to the trustee’s ability to request the grandson’s financial information before authorizing the distribution, but the court properly found that the respondent bank was not liable for breach of trust under the circumstances, and the removal of the co-trustee was appropriate.
Judgment is reversed and remanded.
