NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Davidson County judge has reduced the fee a former public guardian charged a client who was double-billed for a shopping trip.

According to The Tennessean, the January 2012 trip to Dillard's and Walgreens will still cost Marlene Spalding $1,462.50, but she will no longer have to pay twice.

The double billing came to light as the newspaper reported on former conservator Jeanan Stuart, who charged legal rates of $200 to $225 an hour for non-legal services.

Probate Court Judge Randy Kennedy, who had recommended Stuart to the Metro Nashville Council, has ordered a repayment.

Court administrator Tim Townsend said Kennedy is awaiting a task force report on the role of the public guardian and the appropriate fees for non-legal services before recommending a replacement for Stuart.
