VICTORY for Saving Sweet Briar: In Indiana Fletcher Williams we TRUST

Daisy's arm uplifted.
Angel over Daisy Williams’ final resting place. Sweet Briar College was established in a Trust by Daisy’s mother to be a PERPETUAL memorial.

Virginia Supreme Court gives those fighting to save Sweet Briar a win today.  A VICTORY for the efforts to save Sweet Briar.  Laws of trusts cannot apply to a corporation.

Donors everywhere can exhale, but only for a moment.  Case now goes back to the Circuit Court.

Virginia Supreme Court provides many interesting prior case laws worth considering.  Now the Circuit Court must consider a longer injunction, permanent injunction or some other remedy.  Those hoping to save Sweet Briar would like to see a fiduciary appointed and the President and current Board’s decision making ability removed.
