Rule 198. Failure to file inventory or
If any executor or administrator shall fail to file an inventory or an
account when such inventory or account is due under the provisions of these
rules, the clerk shall issue forthwith and cause to be mailed to the executor
or administrator and to his attorney or attorneys of record a notice directing
attention to the fact that the inventory or account is overdue and directing
that the required papers be filed forthwith. If the required papers shall not
be filed within 15 days after the mailing of such notice, the clerk shall issue
against the executor or administrator and his attorney or attorneys of record a
citation to appear in open court on a day certain to show cause why they and
each of them should not be punished as for contempt of court. Each of the cited
persons shall incorporate in a written and verified return any justification or
excuse he may have for the delay complained of. He shall also appear personally
in court on the return day.--Added Dec. 17, 1976.
