Section: Statutes which became effective before September 15, 1948 relating to courts or officers existing prior thereto; effect to be given to
A person to whom general letters of appointment are issued first has exclusive authority under the letters until his appointment is terminated or modified. If, through error, general letters of appointment are afterwards issued to another, the first appointed personal representative may recover any property of the estate in the hands of the personal representative subsequently appointed, but the acts of the latter done in good faith before notice of the first letters are not void for want of validity of appointment.
L.1981, c. 405, s. 3B:10-22, eff. May 1, 1982.
