ESTATE OF HAROLD ANTIN, Deceased (0111/2002) — This proceeding for contempt was brought by Dana Antin, a beneficiary of the estate of Harold Antin, against the executor, her brother Mark Antin, alleging that he failed to comply with this court's order dated September 8, 2009, (Webber, J.) which directed the distribution of tangible personal property in a turnover proceeding. Although many provisions of the order were effectuated, Dana asserts that the executor violated other provisions governing the distribution of certain silver items. These items, along with all of decedent's tangible personal property, had been bequeathed to Dana and Mark in equal shares. However, in the several years since decedent's death in 2002, Mark and Dana had been unable to agree on distribution and the property remained in a warehouse at the cost of mounting storage fees.
