James and another v Williams and others

Trust and trustee – Removal of trustee. The Chancery Division considered an application to remove the trustees administering the testator's will, where tension had arisen between the testator's family and workers in a company that he had established. The court held that it was appropriate to remove the trustees, who were perceived as having close links with the company, and to appoint the testator's daughters in their place.
