I have a number of reasons for needing the court to assign a temporary trustee pending the outcome of my trial against them but need to file a motion requesting it. It's a Missouri trust but the torts that I'm suing them for were committed in Kansas so I'm going to court there.

Texas Trust Attorney Question: I am the beneficiary of a

Texas Trust Attorney Question: I am the beneficiary of a testamentary trust set up by my Grandfather. I am the sole beneficiary and my three cousins are the remaindermen. The current successor trustee is US Trust after BOA, NCNB, and Republic Bank. They are very expensive, but otherwise haven't done anything wrong. #1: did Texas adopt the no-fault trustee removal sections of the Uniform Code and #2: If the beneficiary (me) and all the remaindermen (my three cousins) would like to change the trustee to be either another bank or Me, or one of my cousins, can we force it or must they resign. Again, they've done nothing wrong, but are just way way too expensive for this little trust.
