The Petitioner seeks the issuance of Limited Letters of Temporary Administration D.B.N. After reviewing the petition and the documents attached thereto, the petition is granted.

The powers of the temporary administrator are limited to the enforcement or prosecution of a cause of action in favor of the decedent, and is restrained from compromise of the action or the enforcement of a judgment recovered therein, until the further Order of this Court upon filing satisfactory security, or the order of any court of competent jurisdiction (EPTL 5-4.6). The Court dispenses with the filing of a bond.

Limited Letters of Temporary Administration D.B.N. shall issue to Maureen A. Ley, upon her duly qualifying according to law. The term of office of the temporary administrator shall be six (6) months from the date of the issuance of letters.

The Limited and Restricted Letters of Administration issued to Donna A. Meehan on June 17, 2010 are hereby revoked. The Court dispenses with the filing of the judicial settlement of the accounting of the deceased administrator at this time.

This decision shall constitute the Order of the Court.
