My brother. an attorney, was named executor of our mother's estate -- a rather large one, estimated between two and three million. Three months ago he suffered a serious stroke. Although it is apparent that he will be unable to perform the required duties, he is not willing to relinquish the job to me (I am named in the will as the executor if he is unable).
The situation is further complicated by two facts:
1. he owes the estate a $160,000 mortgage which he never paid our mother.
2. although our mother died nearly two years ago, very little has been done to settle the estate. We have never received an accounting.
What do we do?
