Immediately afterwards, my brother took my dad's truck and put it on his own property. The police... Read more »
The police won't get involved, as they do not want to be in the middle of interpreting civil documents, unless that civil document is a Court Order. As executor, you have a duty to collect all property and then distribute it. If he won't return the property, or buy it for a fair market...Read more »

This is a contract issue and a matter of interpretation of the agreement. By the terms quoted it is ambiguous, meaning it has two possible meanings. The real question will be what was the parties intent at the time the agreement was entered. It is poorly drafted as this contingency should have...Read more »
You'll find cases like that in a search, but before investing time doing so, it might be worthwhile to review the terms of the service agreement. It's possible that could be more applicable than general legal decisions. Good luck
