  • CHIEF UPSET OVER PENSION FUND, FILES SUIT AGAINST AGENT

         ROBERT PARRISH has filed a lawsuit against the estate of the
    late BOB WOOLF, charging mismanagement of Parish's pension fund.
    The suit claims that Woolf received "excessive commissions and
    fees while mis-managing Parish's pension and investment funds."
    Parish's attorney, Sydelle Pittas said the damage figure was
    "close" to $300,000.  Officials at Bob Woolf Associates said they
    knew nothing about the suit and had recently spoken to Parish,
    who they still represent, and "had sensed no ill-will" (Peter
    May, BOSTON GLOBE, 12/9).
