Astor Case Settles

Earlier on this blog, I reported on allegations that Anthony Marshall has been mistreating his mother, Brooke Astor.

According to the AP report, Astor's Son Stripped of Guardianship, Oct. 13, 2006:

Brooke Astor's son has been permanently removed as guardian of her estate, according to a settlement announced in court Friday [October 13, 2006].

The agreement allows Astor's court-appointed guardians, Annette de la Renta and JPMorgan Chase, to remain in place, instead of Anthony Marshall, the 82-year-old son of the 104-year-old philanthropist.

Special thanks to Neil E. Hendershot of the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania law firm of Goldberg Katzman, P.C., who also authors the PA Elder, Estate & Fiduciary Law Blog, for bringing this development to my attention.
