We are in California. My husbands grandmother passed away 4 years ago. There was a will and she left an executor. The executor refuses to comply with the courts request for documentation. We feel (no proof) she has spent the money that was left from the sale of a property. Do the participants that are listed in the will to receive the all proceed have legal recourse action against the executor? Can we force her to comply with the courts requests? The executor's husband is related to the grandmother. The executor her self was not to receive any disbursements.

Yes, beneficiaries can petition the court to compel accountings, and even to remove and replace the executor.
