The secocndary executor had better get a good probate lawyer on board. There are remedies against a fiduciary who has failed, but there is a specific way to proceed and you can't do it on your own.

There may be causes of action for breach of fiduciary on at least part of the breach but it has to be done with a very specific petition for accounting and breach of fiduciary duty. This is a complicated area and your best best for recovery is with the assistance of an attorney.
