72-38-707. Delivery of property by former trustee. (1) Unless a cotrustee remains in office or the court otherwise orders, and until the trust property is delivered to a successor trustee or other person entitled to it, a trustee who has resigned or been removed has the duties of a trustee and the powers necessary to protect the trust property.

(a) the resigned or removed trustee is personally liable for the actual damages incurred as a result of the failure to deliver trust property; and
(b) the court, in its discretion, may order the resigned or removed trustee personally to pay the reasonable attorney fees incurred in enforcing the resigned or removed trustee's duty to deliver trust property.
