Long Running Breach of Trust Case Shows No Sign of Stopping

FloridaThe case is Siegel v. JP Morgan Chase Bank, and after passing the 10 year mark, it may be the longest running breach of trust suit Florida has ever seen. The case has seen multiple trials and appeals. Now, after JP Morgan Chase has emerged victorious in the latest trial in probate court, the case is headed to appellate court once again. The case involves the beneficiaries of the affluent art collector Dorothy Rautbord challenging distributions made from the trust by corporate trustee, JP Morgan Chase.
