No Absolute Quasi- Judicial Immunity For Conservators

Answering a question certified from the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the Connecticut Supreme Court has held that a conservator appointed by the probate court is entitled to absolute quasi-judicial immunity only when executing a probate court order or where the actions are ratified by the court.

 Further, absolute quasi-judicial immunity "does not extend to attorneys appointed to represent respondents in conservatorship proceedings or conservatees." (Mike Frisch)
