Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Robert L. J. Spence, Jr. And Kristina Alicia Woo, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Conrad Ernest Frye.

Attorneys 2:

Tommy L. Fullen and Joseph T. Townsend, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, Katrina Annemarie Smith Kimball.

Judge(s): FARMER

This case arises from a dispute between family members over the proper distribution of assets from two separate trusts. Appellant contends that the grantor of one of the trusts revoked a modification of the trust prior to her death pursuant to a settlement agreement with Appellant. The trial court declined to give effect to a settlement agreement because it was never signed by the parties prior to the grantor’s death. Additionally, Appellant contends that the trial court erred in its interpretation of various provisions in each of the trusts. After thoroughly reviewing the record, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
