Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Adams County, Michael Jacobsen, Judge. REVERSED AND REMANDED. Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ. Opinion by Mullins, J. (7 pages)
Appellants appeal a district court ruling on a trustee’s application for court direction regarding payment of trust income, which directed the trustee to pay Ella Mae Inman the gross income of the trust upon her request regardless of whether trust expenses must then be paid by invading the trust’s assets. OPINION HOLDS: We reverse the district court’s ruling on the trustee’s application for court direction and remand the matter for entry of an order consistent with this opinion.
