In Chavin v. PNC Bank, Delaware, the Delaware Supreme Court ruled on April 28, 2005 that expenses incurred by the trustee of a trust, though in good faith, were based on mistaken assumptions and should not be paid for by the trust. This is contrary to the general rule that litigation costs incurred by a trustee to defend or preserve the trust are paid for by the trust. The court had previously ruled 2 years ago on issues related to beneficiaries of the trust. See 816 A.2d 781 (Del. 2003).
