Judge Randy Kennedy Orders Jeanan Mills Stuart Reimburse Double Billing

More than a year after the Davidson County public guardian double-billed a ward to take her on a shopping trip to Dillards and Walgreens, the judge in the case has ordered a repayment.

The 6.5 hour trip on Jan. 16, 2012, still cost Marlene Spalding $1,462.50, but now she won’t have to pay twice.

The double-billing and the cost of the shopping trip were exposed by The Tennessean in a story about Davidson County’s public guardian, Jeanan Stuart, who charged legal rates of $200 to $225 an hour for non-legal services. The Tennessean also found several instances of double-billing.

Court records show 40 open cases assigned to Stuart have been handed over to new conservators.

Seven cases were turned over to the Greater Nashville Regional Council and six each were transferred to Fifty Forward and the Guardianship and Trusts Corporation. Both are nonprofits.

Townsend said some cases will also be assigned to the Michael Dunn Center, a nonprofit serving the developmentally disabled.

Sixteen cases were handed off to private attorneys with Adam Hill getting two and Travenia Holden getting four.

The court records show Stuart still must file final  accounting reports in the reassigned cases by a July 31 deadline.

    Kennedy rubberstamped the Stuart – and probably all other fiduciary – billings.So now he's making her look like the problem?

  2. Finny Says:

    Well said, Thelma. The judge is ultimately responsible and Judge Kennedy is doing everything possible to divert everyone's attention from him.

  3. Donna Says:

    I saw on NASGA's FB page where someone commented, "Nobody passes the buck like Judge Kennedy."Boy, that says it all.

  4. Norma Says:

    I'm glad to see Stuart getting her share of Karma.
