This is attorney Bill answering your legal estate question today. The trustee must act according to Estate property and trust law in Louisiana. Your brother as trustee must exercise his trust duties in ensuring that the trust is properly managed.
Interested parties, ie beneficiaries of a trust, must legally be informed of their right to challenge a trust once a trust comes into existence after the death of the settlor/ grantor.
Also, the trustee must exercise his fiduciary duties to beneficiaries.
The proper steps for an interested party would be to petition the probate court for a full accounting of trust property to ensure that all property has been properly disbursed.
An action to remove your brother as trustee and to sue your brother for fraud and or breach of fiduciary duties could also follow.
