If not for dutys imposed by litigation, would I owe trustee ANY duty? From: Texas cebar FIDUCIARY DUTY TO DISCLOSE "The trustee and beneficiary are in a fiduciary relationship. The fiduciary relationship is NOT adversarial. The fiduciary relationship demands one the highest duties of loyalty: When persons enter into fiduciary relations each consents, as a matter of law, to have his conduct towards the other measured by the standards of the finer loyalties exacted by courts of equity. That is a sound rule and should not be whittled down by exceptions. If the existence of strained relations should be suffered to work an exception, then a designing fiduciary could easily bring about such relations to set the stage for a sharp bargain. Not 1 ans. before trustee filed. Now costs $1,000's/?
