Just eight days after hearing oral arguments, the D.C. Court of Appeals has remanded a D.C. Superior Court judge’s decision to remove Hogan & Hartson partner Robert Cave as trustee of a trust set up by a former client.

As The National Law Journal has previously reported, Cave was appointed trustee by Colleen Boland in January 2006, just months before she succumbed to breast cancer. Following Boland’s death, Cave found himself at the center of a bitter dispute over how her estate should be used.
