Co-executors of mother's will filed petition for surcharge, alleging mismanagement by bank which had been guardian of mother's estate during final 2 1/2 years of her life. Probate Act and res judicata bar Plaintiffs from recovering for management fees, hourly charges of contractor, and losses from investment. Ward was a party to prior accounting proceedings, and Plaintiffs are in privity with ward as they are her co-executors. Plaintiffs are not barred from recovering for losses for failure to keep decedent's condominiums in repair.
(POPE and HOLDER WHITE, concurring.)
