ESTATE OF VIVIAN BOWEN, Deceased (0253/07) — At the call of the December 11, 2012 calendar, the court granted the administrators' motion for summary judgment and dismissed the objections to the final accounting. The objectant, Barbara Mathias, raised no triable issue of fact. The objectant provided no authority for denying the administrators' commissions or for reducing the attorney's legal fees because he was "arrogant and condescending." Similarly, there was no authority for the objectant's assertion that the administrators should be individually responsible for their lawyer's fees and for court fees, particularly where, as here, the objectant has not prevailed. As to the questions the objectant has raised about the estate of a predeceased niece, they are not relevant to this accounting. Finally, the objectant provides no justification for requesting the disclosure of bank statements which in no way relate to any asserted objection.
