Complaint
Filed August 30, 2012
(Complaint approved in it's entirety by Judge Smith's Order dated January 25, 2013)


VIRGINIA:
IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF FAIRFAX COUNTY
JEAN MARY O'CONNELL NADER,
Plaintiff,
                v.
ANTHONY MINER O'CONNELL,
Individually and in his capacity as          
Trustee under a Land Trust Agreement
Dated October 16, 1992 and as
Trustee under the Last Will and
Testament of Harold A. O'Connell
439 S. Vista Del Rio
Green Valley, Arizona  85614
and
SHEILA ANN O'CONNELL
663 Granite Street
Freeport, ME 04032
        Defendants

COMES NOW the Plaintiff, Jean Mary O'Connell Nader, by counsel, and brings this action pursuant to § 26-48 and 55-547.06 of the Code of Virginia (1950, as amended) for the removal and appointment of a trustee, and in support thereof states the following.

Parties and Jurisdiction

1. Plaintiff Jean Mary O’Connell Nader ("Jean") and *Defendants Anthony Miner O’Connell ("Anthony") and Sheila Ann O'Connell ("Sheila") are the children of Harold A. O’Connell ("Mr. O’Connell"), who died in 1975, and Jean M. O'Connell ("Mrs. O'Connell"), who died on September 15, 1991.

2. The trusts that are the subject of this action are: (a) the trust created under the Last Will and Testament of Harold A. O'Connell dated April 11, 1974, and admitted to probate in this Court on June 18, 1975; and (b) a Land Trust Agreement dated October 16, 1992, which was recorded among the land records of this Court in Deed Book 8845 at Page 1449.

3. Jean, Sheila, and Anthony are the beneficiaries of both of the trusts and, therefore, are the parties interested in this proceeding.

Facts

4. During their lifetimes, Mr. and Mrs. O'Connell owned as tenants in common a parcel of unimproved real estate identified by Tax Map No. 0904-0 1-00 17 and located near the Franconia area of Fairfax County, Virginia and consisting of approximately 15 acres (the "Property").

5. After his death in 1975, a 46.0994% interest in the Property deriving from Mr. O'Connell's original 50% share was transferred to a trust created under his Last Will and Testament (the "Harold Trust"), of which Anthony serves as trustee. A copy of the Last Will and Testament of Harold A. O'Connell is attached hereto as Exhibit A.

6. Mrs. O'Connell held a life interest in the Harold Trust and, upon her death in 1991, the trust assets were to be distributed in equal shares to Jean, Sheila, and Anthony as remainder beneficiaries. Although other assets of the Harold Trust were distributed to the remainder beneficiaries, the trust's 46.0994% interest in the Property has never been distributed to Jean, Sheila, and Anthony in accordance with the terms of the Harold Trust.

7. After Mrs. O'Connell's death, her 53.9006% interest in the Property passed to Jean, Sheila, and Anthony in equal shares, pursuant to the terms of her Last Will and Testament and Codicil thereto, which was admitted to probate in this Court on December 10, 1991.

8. Thus, after Mrs. O'Connell's death, Jean, Sheila, and Anthony each owned a 17.96687% interest in the Property, and the Harold Trust continued to own a 49.0994% interest in the Property.

9. By a Land Trust Agreement dated October 16, 1992, Jean, Sheila, and Anthony, individually and in his capacity as trustee of the Harold Trust, created a Land Trust (the "Land Trust"), naming Anthony as initial trustee. A copy of the Land Trust Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit B and incorporated by reference herein. The Harold Trust, Jean, Sheila, and " Anthony (individually) are the beneficiaries of the Land Trust.

10. The Property was thereafter conveyed by Jean, Sheila, and Anthony, individually and as trustee of the Harold Trust, to Anthony, as trustee of the Land Trust, by a Deed dated October 16,1992 and recorded on October 23,1992 in Deed Book 8307 at Page 1446 among the land records for Fairfax County.

11. As trustee under the Land Trust, Anthony was granted broad powers and responsibilities in connection with the Property, including the authority and obligation to sell the Property. Paragraph 4.04 of the Land Trust Agreement states, in part, as follows:

If the Property or any part thereof remains in this trust at the expiration of twenty (20) years from date hereof, the Trustee shall promptly sell the Property at a public sale after a reasonable public advertisement and reasonable notice thereof to the Beneficiaries.

12. To date, the Property has not been sold, and the Land Trust is due to expire on October 16,2012.

13. According to Paragraph 9.03 of the Land Trust Agreement, the responsibility for payment of all real estate taxes on the Property is to be shared proportionately by the beneficiaries. However, if a beneficiary does not pay his or her share, the Land Trust Agreement provides:

The Trustee will pay the shortfall and shall be reimbursed the principal plus 10% interest per annum. Trustee shall be reimbursed for any outstanding real estate tax shares or other Beneficiary shared expense still owed by any Beneficiary at settlement on the eventual sale of the property.

14. For many years, Jean sent payment to Anthony for her share of the real estate taxes on the Property. Beginning in or about 1999, Anthony refused to accept her checks because they were made payable to "County of Fairfax." Anthony insisted that any checks for the real estate taxes be made payable to him individually, and he has returned or refused to forward Jean's checks to Fairfax County. Under the circumstances, Jean is unwilling to comply with Anthony's demands regarding the tax payments.

15. Anthony is not willing or has determined he is unable to sell the Property due to a mistaken interpretation of events and transactions concerning the Property and, upon information and belief, the administration of his mother's estate. Anthony's position remains intractable, despite court rulings against him, professional advice, and independent evidence. As a result, Anthony is unable to effectively deal with third parties and the other beneficiaries of the Land Trust.

16. In 2007, Anthony received a reasonable offer from a potential buyer to purchase the Property. Upon information and belief, Anthony became convinced of a title defect with the Property that, in his opinion, was an impediment to the sale of the Property. A title commitment issued by Stewart Title and Escrow on April 24,2007, attached hereto as Exhibit C, did not persuade Anthony that he, as the trustee of the Land Trust, had the power to convey the Property. Because of this and other difficulties created by Anthony, the Property was not sold.

17. Since 2007, it appears the only effort put forth by Anthony to sell the Property has been to post it for sale on a website he created, www.alexandriavirginial5acres.com.

18. Since 2009, Anthony has failed to pay the real estate taxes for the Property as required by the Land Trust Agreement. Currently, the amount of real estate tax owed, including interest and penalties, is approximately $27,738.00.

19.  Anthony has stated that he purposely did not pay the real estate taxes in order to force a sale of the Property and clear up the alleged title defects.

20. Since the real estate taxes are more than two years delinquent, Anthony's failure to pay may result in a tax sale of the Property. Anthony was notified of this possibility by a notice dated October 26, 201 1, attached hereto as Exhibit D. In addition to the threatened tax sale, the Land Trust is incurring additional costs, including penalties, interest, and fees, that would not be owed if Anthony had paid the real estate taxes in a timely manner.

21. In May 20 12, Jean, through her counsel, wrote a letter to Anthony requesting that he cooperate with a plan to sell the Property or resign as trustee. To date, Anthony has not expressed a willingness to do either, and still maintains that the alleged title defect and other "entanglements" must be resolved before any action can be taken towards a sale of the Property.

Count I: Removal of Anthony O'Connell as Trustee of Land Trust

22: The allegations of paragraphs 1 through 21 are incorporated by reference as if fully stated herein.

23. As trustee of the Land Trust, Anthony has a fiduciary duty to comply with the terms of the trust agreement, to preserve and protect the trust assets, and to exercise reasonable care, skill, and caution in the administration of the trust assets.

24. Anthony has breached his fiduciary duties by his unreasonable, misguided, and imprudent actions, including but not limited to, his failure to sell the Property and non-payment of the real estate taxes on the Property.

25. The breaches of duty by Anthony constitute good cause for his removal as trustee of the Land Trust.

WHEREFORE, Plaintiff Jean Mary O'Connell Nader prays for the following relief:

A. That the Court remove Anthony Minor O'Connell as trustee under the Land Trust Agreement dated October 16, 1992, pursuant to 26-48 of the Code of Virginia (1950, as amended);

B. That all fees payable to Anthony Minor O'Connell under the terms of the aforesaid Land Trust Agreement, including but not limited to, the trustee's compensation under paragraph 9.01, and all interest on advancements by the trustee to the trust for payment of real estate taxes pursuant to paragraph 9.03, be disallowed and deemed forfeited;

C. That all costs incurred by Plaintiff Jean Mary O'Connell Nader in this action, including reasonable attorneys' fees, be paid by the Land Trust; and

D. For all such further relief as this Court deems reasonable and proper.

                  
Count 11: Removal of Anthony O'Connell as
Trustee of the Trust under the Will of Harold A. O'Connell

26. The allegations of paragraphs 1 through 25 are incorporated by reference as if fully stated herein.

27. The terms of the Harold Trust provide that, upon the death of Mrs. O'Connell, the assets are to be distributed to Jean, Sheila, and Anthony in equal shares. Not withstanding the terms of the Harold Trust and the provisions for its termination, Anthony entered into the Land Trust Agreement in his capacity as trustee of the Harold Trust. As a result, upon the sale of the Property, Anthony can exercise greater control over the Harold Trust's share of the sale proceeds than if the parties held their beneficial interests in their individual capacities.

28, Other than its status as beneficiary of the Land Trust, there is no reason for the continuation of the Harold Trust.

29. On August 8, 2000, an Eleventh Account for the Harold Trust was approved by the Commissioner of Accounts for the Circuit Court of Fairfax County and determined to be a final account.

30. Anthony repeatedly and unsuccessfully challenged the Commissioner's determination and requested, inter alia, that the Court and the Commissioner of Accounts investigate a debt of $659.97 that he alleged was owed to the Harold Trust by Mrs. O'Connell's estate. In these proceedings, the Commissioner stated, and the court agreed, that there was no evidence to support Anthony's claims that a debt existed and, if so, that it was an asset of the Harold Trust.

31. Anthony's repeated and unsuccessful challenges to the rulings of the Commissioner of Accounts and the Circuit Court in connection with the Eleventh Account, and his persistence in pursuing his unfounded claims to the present day, demonstrate that he is unable to administer the Harold Trust effectively and reliably.

32. It is in the best interests of the beneficiaries of the Harold Trust that, upon the sale of the Property, the net sale proceeds be distributed in an orderly and expedient manner. Based on Anthony's actions, he is not the proper individual to fulfill the trustee's duties in administering the Harold Trust.

33. The removal of Anthony as trustee best serves the interests of the beneficiaries of the Harold Trust.

WHEREFORE, Plaintiff Jean Mary O'Connell Nader prays for the following relief:

A. That the Court remove Anthony Minor O'Connell as trustee under the Last Will
and Testament of Harold A. O'Connell, pursuant to § 55-547.06 of the Code of
Virginia (1950, as amended);

B. That all costs incurred by Plaintiff Jean Mary O'Connell Nader in this action,
including reasonable attorneys' fees, be awarded to her in accordance with § 55- 550.04 of the Code of Virginia (1950, as amended); and

C. For all such further relief as this Court deems reasonable and proper.

Count 111: Appointment of Successor Trustee

34. The allegations of paragraphs 1 through 33 are incorporated by reference as if fully stated herein.

35. Jean is a proper person to serve as trustee of the Land Trust in order to sell the Property on behalf of the beneficiaries of the Land Trust, and she is willing and able to serve in such capacity.

36. The best interests of the beneficiaries would be served if the Land Trust is continued for a sufficient period of time to allow the successor trustee to sell the Property, rather than allowing the Land Trust to terminate on the date specified in the Land Trust Agreement. Each of the individual beneficiaries of the Land Trust is age 70 or above, and it would be prudent to sell the Property during their lifetimes, if possible, rather than leaving the matter for the next generation to resolve.

37. Jean is a proper person to serve as trustee of the trust created under the Last Will and Testament of Harold A. O'Connell, and she is willing and able to serve in such capacity.

WHEREFORE, Plaintiff Jean Mary O'Connell Nader prays for the following relief:

A. That Plaintiff Jean Mary O'Connell Nader be appointed as successor trustee under the aforesaid Land Trust Agreement, with the direction to sell the Property upon such terms and conditions as this Court deems reasonable and appropriate, including, but not limited to, fixing a reasonable amount as compensation of the successor trustee for her services;

B. That the term of the Land Trust be continued for a reasonable time in order to allow for the sale of the Property;

C. That Plaintiff Jean Mary O'Connell Nader be appointed as successor trustee under the Last Will and Testament of Harold A. O'Connell for all purposes, including distribution of the net proceeds of the sale of the Property that are payable to such trust;

D. That all costs incurred by Plaintiff Jean Mary O'Connell Nader in this action, including reasonable attorneys' fees, be paid by the Land Trust; and

E. For all such further relief as this Court deems reasonable and proper.

Dear Mr. O'Connell:
We received your letter of January 5, 2014. I am sure the year was simply a
typographical error as the letter was just received. Your request for an opinion
regarding an enclosed document is not made in the context of any pending matter in the
Fairfax Circuit Court Furthermore, even if it was, sending a letter to judges does not
constitute the filing of pleadings as pleadings are filed with the Clerk of Court.
A request for an opinion or ruling by a judge not properly made in a pending case
requests an advisory opinion. Judges "will consider, sua sponte, whether a decision
would be an advisory opinion, because we do not have the power to render a judgment
that is only advisory." Charlottesville Operators Ass'n v. Albemarle Cnty., 285 Va. 87,
99-100,737 S.E.2d 1, 14 (2013); see also Marlin v. Ziher/, 269 Va. 35,40,607 S.E.2d
367, 369 (2005).

Accordingly, on behalf of our entire court, we decline your request for an opinion.
Respectfully yours,
Dennis J. Smith,
Chief Judge, 19th Judicial Circuit of Virginia

Comment:
(1) The "enclosed document" in my January 5, 2014, letter is the 1992 Deed. This Deed, by itself, makes Chief Judge Dennis J. Smith's Order of January 25, 2013, against the law. This Deed was in five (5) of my eighteeen (18) responses to the Complaint.

How could it happen that this Deed which has been in the public record for more than twenty-two years, continues to

"I have been receiving several emails from this person so I contacted Bill Lynch, one of the partners who is purchasing the O’Connell Property for development. Mr. Lynch indicated to me that Mr. Anthony O’Connell had previously been removed from the trustee ownership of the property and that he is not, and has not, been an owner with whom they have been dealing during the purchase of the property. Mr. Lynch indicated that Mr. O’Connell has also been sending a lot of email to him and to anybody else whose email address he can obtain, which is evidenced by the email chain below. That email chain includes any County staff member who has been involved in the project from site reviewers to geotechnical engineers to our GRB members, and so on. My suggestion is to ignore or block the emails from Mr. O’Connell.
