Estate of Denial® was appreciative to see the Wills, Trusts & Estates Prof Blog once again mention the highly questionable conservatorship of Nashville singer/songwriter Danny Tate. In Judge Kennedy, Davidson County, and Conservatorship Abuse, it is aptly noted that the recent order to publicly auction Tate’s home “is only one incident in which Judge Kennedy has been involved the draining of a person’s assets in a bad conservatorship.”
And it’s not that Tennessee legislators and other judicial officials aren’t well aware of the allegations. At a point you have to acknowledge that this once respectable state still wanting to tout conservative credentials is as credible as Kennedy’s performance two years ago when he pretended to terminate Tate’s conservatorship before a packed courtroom and a few television cameras.
All appearances are that the state sanctions Randy Kennedy’s well-known “approach” to individual liberties and property rights. In fact, maybe Nashville’s best-protected open secret might be Kennedy’s status as a highly effective one-man wealth redistribution machine.
Nashville, you’ve got a problem! And the Predators in your town are far from confined just to hockey and the Bridgestone Arena!!
