Landau v. Landau
Landau v. Landau, 230 So.3d 127 (Fla. 3d DCA 2017)
Normally, an injunction is considered to be a serious form of relief, and courts typically will not grant them unless a high burden is met. Here, however, the Court upheld an injunction freezing trust assets, based on the probate court's "inherent jurisdiction" to protect the assets under its supervision. The Court held that in this case, where the Trustee, who was also a beneficiary of the trust, had been sued by a beneficiary for an accounting, breach of trust, and other causes of action, the Trustee's due process was not violated by an injunction order freezing the trust assets until the accounting was completed.
