Section 45a-683 - (Formerly Sec. 45-335). Immunity from civil liability of plenary guardian, temporary limited guardian or limited guardian.
Any plenary guardian, temporary limited guardian or limited guardian who acts in good faith or pursuant to order of a Probate Court pursuant to the provisions of sections 45a-669 to 45a-683, inclusive, shall be immune from civil liability, except that such immunity shall not extend to gross negligence.
(P.A. 82-337, S. 16; P.A. 86-323, S. 12; P.A. 03-51, S. 11; P.A. 11-129, S. 20; P.A. 16-49, S. 14.)
History: P.A. 86-323 applied provisions specifically to “plenary” guardians; Sec. 45-335 transferred to Sec. 45a-683 in 1991; P.A. 03-51 substituted “person with mental retardation” for “mentally retarded person”; (Revisor's note: In 2005, a reference to Sec. 45a-668 was changed editorially by the Revisors to Sec. 45a-669 to reflect the repeal of Sec. 45a-668 by P.A. 04-54); pursuant to P.A. 11-129, “mental retardation” was changed editorially by the Revisors to “intellectual disability”; P.A. 16-49 deleted “of a person with intellectual disability” re guardians, deleted reference to Sec. 45a-684 and made a technical change.
