Judge to Review Conservator Fees

Davidson County Probate Judge David Randy Kennedy has instituted new review procedures for fee requests from attorneys and others involved in conservator cases. Kennedy will no longer approve fee requests on the same day they are submitted. Instead, unopposed fee requests will be held for at least three days to “allow the court a greater period of time to examine and scrutinize all such unopposed motions.” According to the Tennessean, judges in Memphis and Chattanooga have instituted similar new procedures.
