Notes of Decisions

Where ORS 30.070 (Settlement) grants per­sonal representative full power to settle wrongful death claim with approval of probate court and does not require notice to beneficiaries or grant them right to intervene in pro­ceed­ing to approve settle­ment but only to be heard as matter of right re­gard­ing alloca­tion of proceeds, if per­sonal representative breached fiduciary duty, beneficiaries have remedy under ORS 114.395 (Improper exercise of power) and 114.405 (Personal liability of personal representative).
