ESTATE OF REUBEN HOPPENSTEIN, Sefflor (15/2918/A) — These are motions in a contested proceeding for settlement of the account of the trustees of an irrevocable trust created by Reuben Hoppenstein (Settlor) on December 20, 2004 (the 2004 Trust). The objectants seek partial summary judgment to void the trustees' distribution of a $10 million insurance policy on the Settlor's life from the 2004 Trust to a new trust created by the Settlor in 2012 (the 2012 Trust). The objectants have also moved for a protective order precluding the trustees from taking their depositions. The trustees have cross-moved for an award of costs incurred in opposing the motion for a protective order.
