In his critical missive detailing the perceived evils of trust decanting, Professor Stewart E. Sterk trots out technical arguments challenging the social wisdom of modern trust decanting statutes. The practitioner will recognize the vacuousness of these arguments immediately. Interesting as they are to read, the arguments are distilled from the wrong argument bottle and should have no impact on the free flow of trust changes through the modern decanting process.
