Executor de son tort.
No person is liable to an action, as executor of his own wrong, for having taken, received or interfered with the property of a deceased person but is liable to the executor or administrator for the value of all the property so taken or received and for all damages caused by his act to the estate of the deceased; but the provisions of this section must not be construed so as to prevent any creditor from maintaining a civil action against anyone in possession of property fraudulently transferred by such deceased person.
