Temporary order to restrain personal representative from performing administration, disbursement or distribution of estate: Issuance; hearing.
1. On petition of an interested person, the court by temporary order may restrain a personal representative from performing specified acts of administration, disbursement or distribution, or exercising any powers or discharging any duties of the office, or enter any other order to secure proper performance of the duties of the office, if it appears to the court that the personal representative otherwise may take some action that would jeopardize unreasonably the interest of the petitioner or of some other interested person. A person with whom the personal representative may transact business may be made a party to the temporary order.
2. The matter must be set for hearing within 10 days after entry of the temporary order unless the parties otherwise agree. Notice as the court directs must be given by the petitioner to the personal representative and the attorney of record of the personal representative, if any, and to any other party named as a party in the temporary order.
