Probate Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Roy, Christopher


AC42198 - Cook v. Purtill ("The plaintiff, Edward Werner Cook, appeals from the judgment of the trial court denying his motion to open the judgment dismissing his probate appeal. The plaintiff filed this appeal as the trustee of a charitable trust, The Caprilands Foundation (foundation). Because the plaintiff is not an attorney and has appeared without counsel on behalf of a trust, we conclude that the plaintiff does not have the authority to represent the trust. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal.")
