Vorys Partner, Beth Weinewuth authored a article for the November/December issue of the Ohio Probate Law Journal titled, "The Conflict: Representing Fiduciaries (Not the Estate?) after Cincinnati Bar Association v. Robertson."  In the article, Beth takes an in-depth look at a controversial ethics decision that disciplined an Ohio lawyer for representing an estate fiduciary who had also been accused of unauthorized pre-death transfers from the decedent.  In addition, she reviews and discusses a related statute and Ohio Supreme Court decisions that conflicted with the decision.
