Same thing as executor de son tort. Hit with all the liabilities yet doesnt have access to assets. Sound familiar.

Beatty v. Guggenheim Exploration Co.

Beatty v. Guggenheim Exploration Co. (1919) 225 NY 380 is a US trusts law case, concerning the test for the imposition of a constructive trust. It is best known for a quote from the leading opinion by Justice Cardozo.[1]
The constructive trust is the formula through which the conscience of equity finds expression. When property has been acquired in such circumstances that the holder of the legal title may not in good conscience retain the beneficial interest, equity converts him into a trustee.
