Hayward v. Plant

In Hayward v. Plant, 98 Conn. 374, 119 A. 341 (1923), the Court held that "reasonable" compensation for an executor means "what is fair in view of the size of the estate, the responsibilities involved, the character of the work required, the special problems and difficulties met in doing the work, the results achieved, the knowledge, skill and judgment required of and used by the executors, the manner and promptitude in which the estate has been settled and the time and service required, and any other circumstances which may appear in the case and are relevant and material to this determination." Id., 385.
