Any plenary guardian or limited guardian serving in accordance with the provisions of sections 45a-669 to 45a-683, inclusive, may be removed by the Probate Court which appointed such guardian and another person appointed guardian if the court making such appointment, after notice and hearing as required in section 45a-671, finds such removal and appointment of a new plenary guardian or limited guardian to be in the best interest of the protected person. In the event a petition for removal has been filed under this section, the attorney of record for the protected person shall have access to all of the records of the respondent.
