Springfield Mayor ordered to court for estate dispute

Posted on December 14th, 2010 No Comments

A Sangamon County Circuit Court Judge ordered Mayor Tim Davlin of Springfield to appear in court next week for a hearing regarding the estate to which the mayor is executor.

Davlin skipped a Sept. 22 court-ordered deadline by which he was supposed to provide a financial accounting for the estate of his cousin Margaret Ettelbrick, who passed away in 2003.

Catholic Charities of Springfield has asked the judge for both a final accounting and to dismiss Davlin as executor of the estate, worth just under $1 million.

Davlin’s attorney has filed against the estate as well, alleging that he is owed about $20,000 in legal fees that he was never paid.
