SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, SECOND DEPARTMENT
October 20, 1969
IN THE MATTER OF THE ESTATE OF MARY V. LORILLARD, DECEASED. CHARLES S. MCVEIGH, JR., ET AL., APPELLANTS; ANGELO J. INGRASSIA, RESPONDENT
Appeal by the executors from so much of a decree of the Surrogate's Court, Orange County, dated May 5, 1969, admitting the will of decedent to probate, as allowed the respondent special guardian $5,000 for his services and disbursements.
Beldock, P. J., Christ, Brennan, Rabin and Kleinfeld, JJ., concur.
In our opinion, the allowance to respondent over and above $3,500 was excessive (cf. Matter of Lipsit, 21 A.D.2d 509, 515-516; Matter of Rich, 8 A.D.2d 730).
Decree modified, on the law and the facts, by reducing the allowance to $3,500. As so modified, decree affirmed insofar as appealed from, without costs.
