Nashville Woman, Shannon Hill, is Assigned New Conservator

Following a more than two-hour hearing, a 67-year-old Nashville resident has won a partial victory in her battle to win release from a conservatorship dating back to 2009.

Probate Judge David Randy Kennedy told Shannon Hill Wednesday he would order an increase in her monthly allowance from $200 to $300, but he declined to dissolve the conservatorship due to concerns expressed by one of her doctors that her condition could deteriorate if she did not adhere to her medication requirements.

Kennedy also agreed to replace her current conservator, a cousin, with the nonprofit Guardianship and Trust Co., which regularly handles conservatorships in Kennedy’s court.

Kennedy said he would review Hill’s status at a September hearing and stressed that his goal was to place Hill under the least restrictive conditions as possible and that the conservatorship could be tapered back at that time. He also promised a review of her conservator Kathy Mangrum’s final accounting report.

“This is about what’s in your best interests,” Kennedy said.

Hill testified at length about disagreements with Mangrum, who is her cousin, but Kennedy and others involved in the case said repeatedly they saw nothing wrong in the way Mangrum had performed her duties.

    OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, IF I DON'T TAKE MY COLD MEDICINE, MY CONDITION DETERIORATES.COME ON, KENNEDY. IS THE CONSERVATOR GOING TO GET MS. HILL DOWN AND FORCE HER TO TAKE HER MEDS?

    I can imagine Kennedy telling Shannon Hill that the conservatorship all concerned about her. It's baloney.

    I would think by now Judge Randy Kennedy is tired of being in the news, but there are probably so many lives he's messed up or destroyed that we're going to hear alot more before the news on his gets quiet.Thank you for posting the articles on Judge Kennedy, NASGA.

    The Tennessean reported that "he testified at great lengths…" instead of "Hill testified at great lengths…." Big difference. Agree with other commentator that we may have to hear more before anything is done, and exactly who is going to do anything is the million dollar question.
