I have a question about "eminent estoppel" and how it relates

I have a question about "eminent estoppel" and how it relates to waiving the statute of limitations on torts. I have a situation where the trustees of my family trust have been commiting some fairly serious crimes over the last ten years, at my very first meeting with them they pointed out that there was a no contest clause in the trust in addition to "special wording" That said if I sued them for any reason then I'd lose my home and income and rights to the trust forever... it was the very first topic and they must have covered it ten times during the first meeting alone. The breaches have been awful but they were always right there to tell me that if I sued for ANY reason they would cut me off. Six months ago they commited an act so egregious that I must go to the courts. Two months ago I finally received a copy of the trust and there isn't anything besides the no contest clause in it, I've literately been living in fear of going to the authorities because of these guys and now they are telling me that I can't do anything about what's happened in the past because of the limitations period. Is that true?

This is a question about ANOTHER TRUST...I am a lifetime

This is a question about ANOTHER TRUST...I am a lifetime benificiary of "all of the net income" from a commercial building for my lifetime per a trust dated July 1, 1988. 13 days after that trust was written, signed, and witnessed, the trustee "created" another trust (on July 13, 1988) limiting my income to 1/4 of the net income from that building. Can he do that?.... in article II of July 1, 1988 trust, the grantors, the one who was made trustee and the original settlor, both relinquished all right to annul, diminish, etc, and stated that they would not benefit at all from that trust.....Is that second trust valid?.. July 1 trust states "see Schedule A annexed and attached...., and we were not given a "schedule A"...is there any way I can figure out what was on schedule A ???

How detailed should an annual accounting of a trust be for

How detailed should an annual accounting of a trust be for a beneficiary? I ask because I just received this last years and there are a list of transfers made but they only show the account numbers that the transfers were made to. There is no more information and the trustees are claiming that's all they have. I have a few other issues I'm dealing with and the trustees are not being cooperative so I have to rely upon what the law says. I know I'm entitled to an Anika accounting but what does the jaw say about that accounting? Is there a reference I can make that I can point to?

I have started legal eviction process in mesa az . On the grounds of intimidating and threating my son. The roommate has been served and court date is this Thursday at 8am.Roommate just sent me this via txt .. is any of it true?“I am down town at the federal court building picking up bankruptcy package. You want to come to a resolution that is reasonable. We can do that. We must come to an agreement by morning. If not I will leave the necessary documents with the law firm I work with with instructions to file with bankruptcy court. This will put an immediate stay on all court proceedings. Justice court case will be void. I will have 90 days plus a 30 day continuance just to provide a list of creditors. At that point you can file a request to lift the stat. If you prevail you may start the filing and serving all over again. That is the first round the second round will not go well for you. I will file a law suit against you alleging fraud. Misrepresentation seeking punitive damages. The third round is discovery under state rules of civil procedure. Once discovery is complete I will ask the bankruptcy take jurisdiction in fed. courtI spent two days in isolation going thru my options not only as it relates to this issue but other issues. I have strategies in place that I am now taking action. I have never done in bluffing. I going full speed ahead. If attempt to manipulate a conversation you are recording or take any deceitful action towards me. I will consider that action a breach of trust and all attempts to negotiate a resolution in good faith will immediately will end. I will seek extra damages relevant to your actions. Your choice”
