The Director of the EBR Council on Aging is being sued for misuse of office.


The Exec. Dir. of the EBR COA, Tasha Clark Amar is being sued by the family of a 95 year old woman, now deceased, who appointed Ms. Amar as executor of her estate, valued at $314,000, at a fee of more than $120,000.  Is this an “abuse of office” offense?  Is it an ethics violation?  The investigations are just starting, so we asked attorney Bryan Jeansonne, an expert in wills, estates, and trusts to evaluate the claims and counter-claims.
