CT Gen Stat § 45a-372 (2015) What's This?

(a) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (b) of section 45a-357 and section 45a-375, the failure of a plaintiff to present his claim to the fiduciary as prescribed by law shall not impair his right to maintain an action against the beneficiaries under section 45a-368; provided nothing contained herein shall extend the time limited for the commencement of an action to enforce plaintiff’s claim.

(b) Following final distribution of all assets known to a fiduciary, any suit on an unsatisfied obligation described in subsection (a) of section 45a-368 shall be brought against beneficiaries and not against the fiduciary, unless the plaintiff is seeking to have the fiduciary personally surcharged.
