CT Gen Stat § 45a-296 (2015) What's This?

When a will is admitted to probate by a court of probate, and an appeal is taken from the probate of such will, the acts done in good faith by the executor of such will or by an administrator with the will annexed in settling the estate of the testator shall be deemed valid to the same extent as if no appeal had been taken. When an inventory and appraisal have been returned to court by such executor or administrator with the will annexed, and when an order limiting the time for the presentation of claims against the estate of such testator has been passed and published, a further inventory and appraisal shall not be required except of property not included in the inventory returned to court, and further time need not be given for presentation of claims against such estate, if upon such appeal such will is set aside by the Appellate Court. Nothing in this section shall authorize the executor or administrator with the will annexed to pay any legacies named in the will so appealed from while such appeal is pending.

(1949 Rev., S. 6975; P.A. 80-476, S. 252.)

History: P.A. 80-476 restated provisions; Sec. 45-187 transferred to Sec. 45a-296 in 1991.
