Fiduciaries of a decedent’s estate and trustees in insolvency may be authorized by the Court of Probate to work up and complete any stock and materials in an unfinished state, or to continue any business so far as may be expedient for the prudent winding up of the same, if the court finds that it will be for the interest of the estate.

(1949 Rev., S. 7039; P.A. 80-476, S. 305.)

History: P.A. 80-476 rephrased provisions and substituted reference to fiduciaries for reference to executors and administrators; Sec. 45-256 transferred to Sec. 45a-328 in 1991.
