08/14/2018 09:00 Candela, Michael P 16PR00445 Estate of Selberg, Inga Continued By Order of the Court filed on 7/30/18, the Final Account hearing was continued to 10/2/18 at 9:00am. The 8/14/18 court date should have been vacated. No appearance on 8/14/18 is necessary.
08/14/2018 09:00 Candela, Michael P 17PR00122 The Harlin C Robertson Special Needs Trust Continued The account hearing is continued to 10/2/18 at 9:00am to allow Petitioner time to file a supplemental or amended accounting to clarify the following issues: 1) The Summary of Account, on Page 3 of the Report, is miscalculated and fails to account of $10,000.00; 2) In addition, it is unclear whether Trustee and attorney fees are sought to be approved for this period of account, and 3) whether the Petitioner seeks an order from the Court on the issue of whether the specific distributions to the children of Laura A. Lee are to be paid from the Trust assets.
08/14/2018 09:00 Candela, Michael P 17PR00459 Estate of Spittle, Chester Harold Continued The account hearing is continued to 10/2/18 at 9:00am to allow the Petitioner time to correct and explain the following issues. First, the statutory fees for the administrator and attorney are miscalculated. Instead of subtracting the sum for losses on sales, it was added to the fee base. Thus, instead of a fee base of $528,681.70 as stated in the Petition, it should be $521,715.68. The statutory fees to the administrator and the attorney should be $13,434.31 rather than the requested $13,573.63. This correction will also change the proposed distribution slightly, but the dollar amount is not included in the proposed order. Secondly, there is an amount of $3,320.99 in the Credit to Final Inventory & Appraisal, but there is no discussion/explanation in the Report as to where funds came from. The Court requests an explanation for these funds either in a Supplemental Inventory & Appraisal, or in a Declaration.

08/14/2018 09:00 Candela, Michael P 18PR00235 Estate of Ponzini, Bocci Hear Counsel Re: Status of case and how counsel would like to proceed.
08/14/2018 09:00 Candela, Michael P 18PR00239 Mary L. Mortimer Special Needs Trust Hear Counsel There appears to be a typographical error on the accounting. The property on hand at the account beginning is $1,464,391.09, plus receipts of $28,917.90, which totals $1,493,308.99. However, the Summary states total charges of $1,464.391.04. The amount set forth on Schedule A is $1,435,473.19, and if that amount is inserted into the Summary of Account (rather than the $1,464,391.19), then it would balance. The Court will hear from counsel on how to correct the apparent typographical error.
