(a) If a trustee commits a breach of trust, or threatens to commit a breach of trust,
a beneficiary shall have a cause of action to seek:
(1) To recover damages;
(2) To compel the trustee to perform the trustee's duties;
(3) To require an accounting;
(4) To enjoin the trustee from committing a breach of trust;
(5) To compel the trustee to redress a breach of trust by payment of money or otherwise;
(6) To appoint a temporary trustee to take possession of the trust property and administer
the trust or to suspend a trustee with or without the appointment of a temporary trustee;
(7) To remove the trustee; and
(8) To reduce or deny compensation of the trustee.
(b) When trust assets are misapplied and can be traced in the hands of persons affected
with notice of the misapplication, the trust shall attach to such assets. A creditor of a trust may follow assets in the hands of beneficiaries even if they
were received without notice.
