Judge Replaces Public Guardian as Woman’s Conservator

Probate Judge David Randy Kennedy this week replaced a Davidson County public guardian who had been charging her full hourly fee for legal work regardless of the service she was performing, the Tennessean reports. Court records show that while Jeanan Mills Stuart was serving as conservator of Marlee Spalding she billed $986 to accompany her to a Christmas concert at the Schermerhorn and $1,282 for a shopping trip, the newspaper reported.  Spalding’s sister Myra S. Whitaker will take over as conservator, and Judge Kennedy has said he will not assign any additional cases to Stuart pending a review of the fees she has charged.
