In Texas, can contingently remainder beneficiaries have standing to assert claims regarding trust administration? We will look at 2 cases with different outcomes to analyze that question.  In the first case, John Little, Jr. (Father) created a will and a revocable living trust.  Mr. Little named himself as the lifetime beneficiary and his three children, Mary Ann, Jay, and Dan as the remainder beneficiaries. The Father and Dan were named co-trustees during Father’s lifetime.  After the death of the father, a dispute arose between Mary Ann and Jay against their brother Dan, who was acting as a co-trustee when the transactions occurred.
